PERTH is preparing to welcome one of Australia’s leading energy conferences in November when 440 delegates and industry leaders are expected to arrive.
Australian Hydrogen Conference (West) will address the latest emerging projects, challenges and opportunities to shape the future of this rapidly expanding industry.
The two-day conference is expected to directly generate upwards of A$560,000 for the West Australian economy, boosting local jobs and supporting the recovery of the business events industry.
Run by Sydney branch of Informa, the Australian Hydrogen Conference (West) is complemented by its east coast counterpart, which will next be hosted in Adelaide.
Deputy premier and tourism minister Roger Cook said: “Western Australia’s tourism industry is of key importance to the WA State Government, and we are actively supporting the ongoing recovery of the sector through our $185 million Reconnect WA funding package, which included $15 million to attract lucrative business events to WA such as the Australian Hydrogen Conference (West).”
“Hosting the Australian Hydrogen Conference in Western Australia presents a valuable opportunity to promote our world leading expertise, WA’s diverse economy and acts as a front door for investment, trade and talent attraction.”
“On top of that, our State’s luxury accommodation and world-class experiences are second to none, and I invite delegates attending the Australian Hydrogen Conference (West) to extend their stay in WA and explore our incredible State.”
Gareth Martin, CEO of Business Events Perth, said Western Australia’s growing strengths in the hydrogen sector were significant and contributed to the state being chosen as the destination for the 2022 event.
