  • Published by Vedat

Victorian Minister for Tourism and Major Events Louise Asher yesterday announced, ahead of Business Events Week to be held 25 February to 1 March, that Melbourne has won six major conferences which will inject an estimated $12.7 million into the Victorian economy.

These international conferences will attract approximately 3550 delegates to Melbourne over the next three years and include:

•           World Congress on Biosensors, 2014;

•           SME Enterprise Software Technology and IT Solutions (SESTECH), 2014;

•           Asia-Pacific Diabetic Limb Problems Meeting, 2014;

•           Ninth International Symposium on Turbulence and Shear Flow Phenomena (TSPF-9), 2015;

•           Annual Conference and Exhibition of the Asia-Pacific Professional Leaders in Education (APPLE), 2015; and

•           Asia-Pacific Orthopaedic Association Congress (APOA), 2016.

Ms Asher said these conferences highlight the economic value of business events to the Victorian economy.

“The inaugural Business Events Week will give the wider community an insight into the positive impact events like these have on the economy, our local industries and Melbourne’s international profile,” Ms Asher said.

“Winning conferences such as these is extremely important to Victoria as we continue to compete against other states to attract these valuable international conferences to Melbourne, which also support Victoria’s $15.9 billion tourism industry.”
