The Awards night has a decidedly musical theme to it, being hosted opnce again by Brian Nankervis from the SBS 'Rockwiz show'. Last year's Awards night was hosted by Brian and was such a hit that everyone demanded that Brian come back for an 'encore'. All Conference delegates receive complimentary tickets for the Awards dinner. You're more than welcome to bring your partner, client or colleague for $150 per person. Dont miss this fabulous night of celebration, networking, entertainment, and good food.
