RDA E.1.2.4 states the following; note the last sentence:

"Enclose the number, date, and location of a conference, etc., in parentheses. Separate the number, date, and location by a space, colon, space. Separate multiple locations by a semicolon and a space."

I'd presume the PCC follows this same practice.
