Perth Tourism Industry Exchange

The West Australian tourism sector recently celebrated the 2016 Perth Tourism Industry Exchange.

Held at the Perth Arena, the event was an opportunity to acknowledge the major contribution tourism plays in boosting the economy of the State.

Its economic diversity provides an array of direct and indirect economic benefits through positive flow-on effects to many industry sectors and small businesses.

The Armadale Visitor Centre exhibit was represented by Suzy Parravicini, Tourism Co-ordinator and Barbara Hugill, Visitor Centre Co-ordinator. Both Suzy and Barbara showcased our diverse product and agreed that it was an outstanding success.

Avocados donated a weekend for two in their Riverside Chalet which was won by Judith Burton of the Four Points by Sheraton. Judith can now come and sample our hospitality in the hills.
