Fremantle’s latest pitch to lure business events

Eve Clark general manager L3Harris, Fremantle Mayor Hannah Fitzhardinge and Business Events Perth CEO Gareth Martin.

The City of Fremantle has partnered with Business Events Perth to launch its latest business events campaign which features videos with four local industry leaders.

The campaign aims to leverage Fremantle’s strategic position close to the Western Trade Coast and the city’s strong connection to maritime, logistics and defence industries, the arts, blue economy, sustainability and innovation.

“The opening of Walyalup Civic Centre and FOMO, along with new hotels and hospitality venues, means Fremantle is in a strong position to pitch for this business,” said Fremantle Mayor Hannah Fitzhardinge.

“The city offers the complete experience for delegates in one of the most eclectic and spirited seaside destinations in the world.

“For this campaign we approached four representatives from key industry sectors inviting them to talk about doing business in Fremantle.

“Their insights act as powerful testimonials from Fremantle-based businesses, each of which are innovators and leaders in their fields, as to why the city has strong appeal to host conferences and events.”

Business Events Perth CEO Gareth Martin said the recurring theme throughout the campaign is Fremantle’s collaborative community of businesses ready to host events.

“Fremantle offers delegates so many benefits beyond the conference environment, it’s a colourful tapestry of heritage buildings, street art, little laneways, local characters, culinary delights and natural landscapes,” he said.

“There are also many exciting tourism experiences and attractions to offer inspiration for pre and post conference touring and partner programs.

“We’re excited to be working with the City of Fremantle to ensure business event clients are aware of the changes that have taken place in Fremantle over the past few years, making it a vibrant business event destination.”
