Oh What a Night!

The Awards Ceremony at the Novotel Twin Waters saw events professionals from all sectors come together to enjoy a bit of sass and sparkle at the black-tie event. There was a strong local line up of performers who created a sense of anticipation, glamour and triumph, and the room shared some moments of reflection and plenty of celebration at the 10th Event Awards ceremony.

Recap

Stellar Symposium

Thank you to our fantastic industry champions for facilitating some deep skills development in the Symposium Workshops on day one. The first ever headline Masterclass series was a real treat, with Fenella Kernebone workshopping communication, Peter FitzSimons delving into creativity and agility, and literally getting our hands dirty with chef Matt Golinski in his session on resourcefulness.
