Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre (PCEC) hosted more than 80 events in March signalling a revival of a pre-Covid events industry in Western Australia.
After one year of developing and implementing Covid-safe venue procedures aligned to current health department directives, PCEC welcomed over 45,000 guests for face-to-face events last month.
Notable events included The UN Women International Women’s Day Breakfast and The Chamber of Minerals and Energy WA’s Women in Resources Award Presentation Dinner, which drew over 900 guests to celebrate the growth of female participation in the sector.
Australasian Oil & Gas Energy was held at PCEC once again celebrating 40 years, while the Underground Operators Conference was delivered in a hybrid format that allowed delegates from around the world to connect.
PCEC also hosted two events with Exhibitions and Events Australia. The Perth Home Show attracted over 10,000 people which was an increase of 10.5 per cent on 2019 attendance, while the EveryWoman Expo also drew 13,351 people leading to record number of exhibitors committing to a trade presence at next year’s event.
