Getting to the venue

The event is held in the BelleVue Ballroom at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Mounts Bay Road, Perth.

Ample parking is located directly under the Centre. Alternatively you can catch a taxi or use public transport. The Esplanade train station is located a short walking distance from the Centre. Just keep in mind that the event does not finish until late in the evening.

The BelleVue Ballroom is located on level three of the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. There will be signs at the bottom of the staircase so you know you’re at the right place.

When to arrive

Make sure you arrive at 6:30pm. You can collect your name tag from the registration tables and find out what table you are sitting at by locating your name on the large table chart. There will be plenty of WA Training Awards staff around to help you if you have any questions.

Once you’re in the foyer and know where you’ll be sitting you can take in the exciting atmosphere, mingle with the other guests and enjoy the stunning views of the Perth City and Swan River with a pre-dinner drink.
