Aspire Program - Perth Convention Bureau

Event Date: 
13 February 2017
Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre

Perth Convention Bureau (PCB) is responsible for marketing Western Australia both nationally and internationally as a destination for conferences. Conferences hosted in Western Australia build the profile of the conference convener, the national organisation, disseminate knowledge locally as well as attract investment and tourism.

The Aspire Program is a highly successful initiative of PCB which facilitates PCB’s novel business methodology of recruiting local conveners within the West Australian community to support bids for international and national conferences.

PCB currently partners with Western Australia’s Universities, the City of Perth, the City of Mandurah, Australian Institute of Management WA, Giving West and the Telethon Kids Institute; all organisations in which professionals work or reside who are potential conference conveners for Western Australia.

The aim of the program is to assist the individual’s personal and professional development, either through attendance at a relevant international conference, or by undertaking further study in their chosen field of endeavour. The funding covers travel, accommodation and registration expenses to the maximum value of the award.

The 2017 Awards open September 2016 and close 31 March 2017.

The Bureau hosts two main events that support the Aspire Program each year. The first is a free educational lunch seminar aimed at helping potential applicants understand the application process and hear from previous successful applicants. This event will be held on the 13th February 2017 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
