Perth tunes into global ultra-high frequency electronics conference

Perth will host the world’s largest gathering devoted to the field of ultra-high frequency electronics and applications in 2024.

The 49th International Conference on Infrared, Millimeter and Terahertz Waves 2024 (IRMMW-THz 2024) will mark 12 years since the conference was last held in Australia.

Over 600 delegates from around the world are expected to attend the six day conference.

The bid was led by Associate Professor Vincent Wallace from The University of Western Australia in partnership with Business Events Perth, Arinex and Tourism Australia, who supported the bid through their Business Events Bid Fund Program.

“Our expertise in bidding for international business events, combined with Western Australia’s excellence in the field, and our strong bid chair Associate Professor Wallace ensured that Perth was the preeminent choice,” Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin said.

Bid Chair Associate Professor Vincent Wallace said the committee was “most impressed with the commitment and support” from the city, Business Events Perth and organiser Arinex.

“Not only did they recognise Perth and Western Australia as a fantastic place to visit, but also the strength and depth of the scientific community here, and the importance of international networking and collaboration,” he said.
