New name at convention centre

THE Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre is planning to announce its new chief executive to head Perth’s newest tourism drawcard

Tourism sources have tipped that South African-based Peter Brokenshire will take on the role.

Mr Brokenshire heralds from the International Convention Centre in Durban, voted Africa’s leading convention centre in the 2001 world travel awards.

Construction of the Convention & Exhibition Centre is already under way and projections suggest the centre will attract lucrative international conference and convention business to Perth and WA.

PCEC has been dogged by controversy throughout it’s relatively short history including calls for a taskforce into the original tender process.

Most recently conflict has erupted over the loss of 1,200 parking spaces following the closure of the Busport car park.

Scheduled for completion in 2004 PCEC will contain a 1,500 bay car park that will be run by the council.

However, only 900 of those bays will be available to commuters. The remaining 600 will be required for the use of visitors to the PCEC whenever it is hosting conventions or exhibitions.
