“The conference theme, Rediscovering the Heart, invites speakers and delegates to explore why mainstreets are again becoming the heart and soul of city and town centres across Australia,” said Mainstreet 2009 chairman, David Duncanson.

Held over four days, Mainstreet 2009 features lectures and workshops led by policymakers, practitioners and researchers, and gives delegates the opportunity to see urban developments across the Perth metropolitan area.
“The Mews Park area just adjacent to Cicerello’s was the perfect setting for guests to meet each other and network as they enjoyed a mix of oysters, prawns and other seafood delights, matched with a glass of wine or beer,” said Cicerello’s owner, Henry Liascos.
“We wanted to ensure there was a lively atmosphere, so we also had a guitarist on hand, local craft stalls and a magician who mingled with the crowd, ensuring guests were left with a lasting positive impression.
“There really is no better place to enjoy the absolute best of Fremantle, particularly when you’re introducing a group of delegates to the conference’s host city,” he said.
