A much-anticipated business event linking key global hubs in Scotland and Australia will return to Aberdeen for the fifth time.

The Marcliffe Hotel & Spa will be the setting for the Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway which will be hosted by Granite PR and held in association with The Government of Western Australia on Tuesday, 6 December.

The lunchtime session will once again provide a platform for international networking, knowledge sharing and discussion. Heading up an impressive line-up of speakers will be the Government of Western Australia’s UK/European representative, John Langoulant. He will be joined by fellow guest speakers including WAGO colleague Tom Lamond, Open Door Migration’s Jacqui Ure, Dr Francis Norman of the Centre of Decommissioning Australia (CODA) and Bill Hare of AOG Energy.

The Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway builds on the success of the now well-established Gateway series of events by creating an international bridge and acting as a springboard to further strengthen the links between the locations as well as facilitating additional opportunities between participating businesses and attendees.

Commenting on plans for the fifth Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway event creator and Granite PR founder/managing director Brett Jackson says, “There is a lot happening in both locations right now – from late life asset management and decommissioning to hydrogen, LNG and the labour market – so this update will provide an ideal opportunity for delegates to brush up their knowledge of recent development and future plans.”

“We hope that the opportunity to meet face-to-face will appeal to anyone with an interest in the Perth WA market, and we look forward to an interesting and information session thanks to our line-up of eminent guest speakers,” Jackson adds.
