Keynote Speakers Wanted for Business Events around Australia

Press Room > 2021

Business Events Perth is offering up to AUD25, 000 to help secure extraordinary keynote speakers for national business events anywhere in Australia.

For a limited time, Western Australia’s convention bureau is offering cash incentive to help business event planners lock in an outstanding headline speaker and in turn boost registrations for their 2021 business event.

Business Events Perth chief executive Gareth Martin said, the new fund was designed, to offer a helping hand to business events around Australia this year, which are still recovering from the impacts of the pandemic.

“We recognise that to revitalise the business events industry we need to invest in it and provide immediate support, so events can proceed with certainty.”

He further added: “That is why this offer is available to national business events taking place anywhere in Australia in 2021, not just in Western Australia. We have to support events that are taking place now, so they’ll still be here in the years to come.”

The right keynote speaker according to the chief executive can, inspire and motivate a conference audience, and a high-profile personality, is often a decision-making factor for delegates to attend a business event.

Eligible events can access up to 50 per cent of the funding once the speaker is confirmed.

The keynote speaker incentive is open to business events taking place before December 31, 2021 that have duration of three days or more, and a minimum of 200 in-person delegates.

This new funding is independent of other subvention funding offered by Business Events Perth for business events held in Western Australia.
