In a major win for Western Australia, the world’s largest marine mammal conference will converge in Perth in 2023, bringing thousands of marine experts from around the world and injecting A$10m (US$7.2m) into the local economy.
Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin said he was delighted that the bureau had delivered the successful bid to bring the 25th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals to the city in December 2023.
As the largest conference of its kind, it is expected to attract more than 2,000 members of the Society for Marine Mammals (SMM) to Western Australia over eight days, including pre and post touring to the regions.
