SATURDAY 28 NOVEMBER 2015
DOLTONE HOUSE, DARLING ISLAND WHARF.
The ALCC was proud to hold its annual business awards dinner, recognising and celebrating the achievements of those in the business community who have excelled in a number of different industries. The dinner this year had particularly special significance, being the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the ALCC in 1985 as a forum to enhance trade and investment relations between Australia and Lebanon, a hallmark of the ALCC which continues to this day and remains unparalleled.
The dinner was held at Doltone House, Darling Island Wharf, and was attended by over 800 members and guests, including Arab ambassadors, government officials, representatives from all industries and media outlets. Our special guest speakers were the Honourable Barnaby Joyce MP, Federal Minister for Agriculture, who spoke of his affinity for Lebanon and the trade and investment potential between the two countries, and His Excellency Nabil Al-Saleh, Ambassador to Australia for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, who urged Australians and Australian companies to capitalise on the myriad opportunities between Australia and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The highlight of the evening was the announcement of our award winners, who were all very deserving in their respective categories. The winners were as follows:
• DKM Blue Group – for Branding & Marketing.
• Growthbuilt – for Construction.
• Pierre Bouantoun, Chemist Warehouse – for Retail.
• Dr. Eddy Kizana – for Medical Research.
The event was graciously sponsored by Madison Marcus Lawyers, and proudly supported by the ALCC’s Principal Partners, Arab Bank Australia and Etihad Airways.
