“Across two days, EEAA held three events including an industry round-table, a security, safety and counter terrorism workshop and an inaugural Young Stars & Leaders Table,” said EEAA chief executive, Joyce DiMascio.

“Our visit to the west was well-received and as a result of EEAA’s visit to Perth, we are pleased to announce that in 2017 the EEAA Board will head to Western Australia for the first time.”

While in Perth, EEAA also attended a special briefing with Paul Papalia, Shadow Minister for Tourism; Corrective Services; Defence Issues.

“Our Members, particularly the Perth Convention Bureau and Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, see great value in working closely with the EEAA and they are very committed to assisting us to grow business events in the west, especially in the conference and expo markets.” she said.

“Our WA annual roadshow is further evidence of the need for a strong and active presence in the State. This year, EEAA played a crucial role in advocating for continued investment in the sector by the West Australian Government when the Barnett State Government announced it would cut funding to the Perth Convention Bureau.

“It is important that the business events sector is recognised for its contribution to state and national economies and we are pleased that both the Government and Opposition are continuing to support and invest in our sector.”
