The Australian Event Awards ceremony was not only a night for the Finalists and Winners to shine, but also for a range of performers from the Sunshine Coast and beyond to put on a show for the events industry.
Adiamus String Quartet radiated glamour on stage from the moment doors opened, enchanting attendees upon their arrival to the Wandiny room. Noosa Hinterland up-and-comer Emma Bridget Tomlinson opened the show’s proceedings with Fergie’s “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody”, setting the tone for a night of celebration. Singer-songwriter Clare Hennessy shared beautiful tunes over dinner, and local vocalists The Kitty Kats closed the evening, getting attendees up on their feet with their powerhouse musicality and cheeky charm.
