Perth Convention Bureau managing director Anne-Maree Ferguson lists the role she played in bringing the new Exhibition and Convention Centre to reality as her most significant achievement during her career in the exhibition industry. Ms Ferguson, who was the youngest bureau chief in Australia when she joined the PCB in 1994, instigated the feasibility study for the $220 million centre. She has also been responsible for growing the bureau’s annual turnover almost 10-fold, a growth driven by sales, and boosting its staffing by a factor of seven. The bureau has twice won the world’s most prestigious international convention marketing award from the International Congress and Convention Association.
