LEADERS from 54 nations and over 3000 delegates and visitors will descend on Perth in October 2011 for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM).
CHOGM will coincide with a visit by a senior member of the Royal family in their capacity as head of the Commonwealth lifting the status of the event and the impact it will have on the Perth economy even further.
“CHOGM will be the biggest event to be held in Perth for many years.” explained General Manager of the Metro Hotel Perth, Ms. Cheryle Irvin. .” With the leaders of 54 Commonwealth nations set to participate, this will be the biggest single event to hit Perth shores since the America’s Cup”
The meeting aims to increase public awareness of the value and function of the Commonwealth. As part of a very diverse agenda it includes business, youth and community forums that will provide some opportunities for local business and the community to participate. The event also provides the added benefit of showcasing Perth and Western Australia as a modern and world-class tourist and business destination.
“This will be a rare opportunity to promote Western Australia throughout the world, particularly in Southern Asia and the African-Indian Ocean regions.” said Ms.Irvin. “Our great city and everything that it has to offer will be at the centre of world political debate for that week in October 2011.
With such an influx of people coming into an already busy city such as Perth, hotel occupancies are expected to be extremely high not only during the meeting but in the weeks either side of the event.
“Our Hotel has already received numerous enquiries from interested groups during the CHOGM period,” said Ms. Irvin “All the hotels and other tourism operators in Perth are certainly looking forward to a very busy and exciting period”.
