“Perth certainly pulled out all stops and #PIACongress18 was our biggest to date – with 721 delegates having a great time and enjoying all the Perth had to offer. The delegates LOVED it all – the study tours, the exclusive use of Optus Stadium and lighting it up in PIA red! – the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and all that Perth offered. Many stayed on – at the very least made a long weekend of it after Congress, and masses headed down to Margaret River and up to the Swan Valley for the week afterwards – flights were all full Sunday night and Monday – happy town planners heading home to share the delights of WA and all that they learnt from Congress! Thank you to the PCB and your supporters for all your effort to make this such a wonderful Congress. On the ground, all the venues and support networks were great – there were no problems with any venue, coach service, venue support services such as theming companies, and the catering was all great. We can certainly recommend Perth to any Association for the annual conference.”

AIESEC 2014, 146 delegates - Aditi Bhalla, State Manager, UWA Representative, AIESEC Australia WA. 

"We held some off-site events to showcase some of the best of WA. Including a welcome function at Fremantle Prison where we had local wineries, cheese producers, olive oil and beauty products providing testers and tasters. We also had an evening on The Leeuwin II tall ship; this went down a treat with the delegates.”

Governance Institute’s Annual Conference 2013, 230 delegates – Kerin Clancy, Events Manager, Governance Institute of Australia Ltd.

The Accounting and Finance Association of Australia and New Zealand (AFAANZ) Conference 2013, 433 delegates – Cheryl Umoh, Executive Director, Accounting and Finance Association of Australia & NZ.

“Perth Convention Bureau staff were very helpful and attended any inquiries promptly and efficiently. A large number of delegates spent the weeks prior to and some the weeks after the convention travelling Western Australia and visiting Perth, and attending the Royal Show. The feedback from delegates was all positive for the convention, the accommodation and for Western Australia."

Australian Photographic Society Congress (APSCON) 2013, 177 delegates – James Harrison, Sub Committee Chairperson, Australian Photographic Society Inc.

NACCHO National Member Meeting & AGM 2013, 300 delegates – Irene Peachey, Policy Officer, National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation.

“We initiated preparation for the Conference in early 2011 and advertised the Conference at the 4th Conference in the series in mid-2011. We liaised with the Australian Water Association (head office in Sydney) for the organisation of the conference. We also liaised with the Water Corporation of Western Australia for technical tour organisation. Delegates were very impressed with the technical tours and provided very positive feedback. Locally, Perth Convention Bureau was very helpful in providing us with relevant materials for conference organisation as well as advice on local organisation aspects e.g. venues & suppliers recommendations. Additional brochures and information for delegates provided by PCB were also appreciated by delegates. We selected Pan Pacific Hotel as the Conference venue and Fraser’s at Kings Park for the welcome reception venue. Both venues were fantastic and generated very positive feedback from delegates, especially the international delegates. Delegates also commented on the exceptional quality of the food served. We also found the service provided by both venues excellent and the staff whom we interacted with were very helpful and accommodating.”
