Welcome everyone to our NSW & ACT Branch Awards for 2023 to be held in the Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel, Sydney and hosted by the inimitable Ray Martin AM.  Please book your tickets asap using the booking link below.
Please note that we have opted for 'cabaret' seating this year, where every attendee has a good view towards the video walls and the main stage, but that this limits seating at each table to 8 people. Your ticket includes drinks, canapes, dinner and the awards ceremony.
The quality of submissions was very high this year and it's going to be a wonderful night. See you there!
