Perth 2011 Director of Commercial Operations Darren Beazley welcomed today's announcement, saying that the Event's extensive operations made it paramount to partner with an insurer of the highest calibre.
"Perth 2011 is thrilled to have secured a high quality partner in QBE. Due to the complex and diverse risks associated with an Olympic qualifying Event, it made sense to partner with one of the most experienced insurance companies in the country," Beazley said.
"QBE is highly respected, an industry leader and a perfect 'fit' with this international Event. As the journey progresses and excitement builds in the lead up to next year's World Championships, Perth 2011 is proud to have QBE Insurance as our commercial partner assisting in showcasing our sport, our country and our state to the rest of the world."
