GAMEX will be sponsored from 2017 until 2019 through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program, made possible by Royalties for Regions.
The event, which will celebrate its 39th anniversary in 2017, attracts more than 200 intrastate, interstate and international competitors ranging from novices to professionals.
Fishing is a popular tourism activity, with almost one million overnight visitors in WA participating in a fishing activity during their trip.
In fact Exmouth is regarded as one of the world’s best fishing destinations with more than 40 different game fish species on offer, including all six Australian billfish species.
Hosting events such as GAMEX helps to further promote the State as a fishing hotspot.
In addition to the fishing tournament, GAMEX will also feature family entertainment as well as education sessions, scientific studies and product information to teach people about sustainable game fishing.
