City of Perth approves new $230k sponsorship for BE Perth

City of Perth Commissioners have approved a new one-year $230,000 sponsorship for Business Events Perth (BE Perth).

The funding will allow BE Perth to continue the flagship City of Perth Aspire Award, which supports local talent in their professional development through attendance at international conferences.

“The City sponsorship will support BE Perth to attract major events, such as the world’s largest marine mammal conference which BE Perth recently secured to converge in Perth in 2023, injecting $10 million into the local economy,” Chair Commissioner Andrew Hammond said.
