PCEC Welcomes AusBiotech 2022

Nov 09, 2022

Last month we welcomed AusBiotech 2022 to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre for the first time since 2005.

The Government of Western Australia, along with Business Events Perth, committed $450,000 to secure the three-day programme here in WA.

The event is Australia’s largest Life Sciences Conference, uniting Australia’s biotechnology sector and highlighting the importance of Western Australia’s health and medical life sciences industry, which encompasses 244 companies, an increase from 119 in 2017.

“PCEC are proud to be able to work with Business Events Perth and the state’s Minister for State Development, Jobs and Trade, Roger Cook to host AusBiotech. We look forward to collaborating on future opportunities in the state’s priority industry sectors, to support the economic growth of WA and business events in Perth.” commented Nigel Keen, General Manager PCEC.

Medical Research and Innovation and ICT Minister Stephen Dawson said the AusBiotech conference is an “incredible opportunity” for the WA research sector to promote all of its accomplishments.

Minister Roger Cook opened the conference, alongside AusBiotech CEO Lorraine Chiroiu. “With our rapidly growing health and medical life sciences industry, WA can play a leading role in developing healthcare solutions for the future,” said Cook.

“Business events act as a catalyst and a front door for trade and investment. AusBiotech 2022 and AusBioInvest 2022 are a platform for current and future biotech leaders to pitch their new products to potential investors, creating new opportunities and collaborations.”
