Meet the Experts Dinner
Wednesday 8 May 2019

BCEC 6:30pm – 8:30pm Smart Casual $60 per person

Sign for a stimulating evening discussing ‘hot topics’ with your colleagues. Hosted by experts in a variety of contemporary topics who will trigger lively discussion at each table of 8-10 people. You will have the opportunity to move tables to participate in other discussions at two points during the evening, after entrée and after main course. This is a great way to network and stimulate thinking while enjoying a meal with colleagues. Tickets for this will be at an additional cost (mentioned above) and can be purchased through the online registration form.


Wine Tasting Evening
Wednesday 8 May 2019

The Ship Inn 6:30pm – 8:30pm Smart Casual $60 per person

Why not take a night off, relax and get to know your peers at our Wine Tasting Evening? Experience some local Australian wines, participate in a fun wine game and be on the lookout for spot prizes. The Ship Inn constructed in 1864, once a rowdy sailor’s drinking den, has been transformed into a civilised gastropub with a traditional atmosphere in a prime South Bank location. It is approximately 10-15 minutes’ walk from the BCEC along Grey Street.
