Venues to grow and diversify appeal - SPECIAL REPORT

With the convention market in Perth showing no signs of slowing, the focus has turned to the city’s largest venues and their capacity to attract major national and international events.

The shift from construction to production hasn’t slowed the mining sector’s preference for Perth as a conference destination, with major events taking up the entire space at Perth’s largest venue last year.
