MANDURAH and the Peel Region have been chosen as the destination for the Ulysses Motor Cycle Club 2021 annual general meeting against a field of national competitor destinations.

The seven-day event will be staged at multiple Mandurah venues from Tuesday, March 23 until Monday, March 29.

Ulysses Motor Cycle Club, the biggest social club in Australia, is an over 40s, not-for-profit association promoting the interests of older motorcyclists and supports select charities.

The annual general meetings attract more than 3000 delegates.

Perth Convention Bureau’s chief executive Paul Beeson said he was delighted to have secured the Ulysses meeting for WA and even more so to have Mandurah the selected destination.

“Mandurah possesses the ideal conference mix of multiple, large capacity venues with diverse, high quality leisure touring product,” he said.

In addition to the conservatively estimated $18.5 million to be spent at the Mandurah event, the pre- and post-conference tourism through the Peel Region and WA would benefit tourism and other industries enormously.

“The nature of leisure motorcycling, to tour at length, will ensure the State Government and the City of Mandurah investment in the conference is returned at a very high rate, higher than most conferences and at a higher spread of dispersal throughout the State,” Mr Beeson said.

Ulysses Motor Cycle Club 2021 AGM director Tony Collins said the team at Perth Convention Bureau played a pivotal role in helping prepare the successful bid document for the event and their support was greatly appreciated.

He also thanked the City of Mandurah for their ongoing assistance and support.

“Ulysses Club members look forward to seeing the best of WA,” he said.
