The PCEC was built in 2004, while a refurbishment program is under way.

Tourism Council calls for PCEC expansion

Western Australia’s top tourism lobby group says the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre needs to grow by at least 60 per cent, otherwise the state risks falling behind its eastern counterparts in the race to secure big international events.

The Tourism Council WA today released a report on the PCEC, which showed it was Australia’s oldest major convention centre and had reached capacity.

In order to attract an additional 22,000 new delegates, who would spend an estimated $34.8 million in WA, the Tourism Council said the PCEC needed to grow its exhibition capacity by 10,000 square metres, from its current size of 16,400sqm.
