Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony: Around the World in 80 Days at Energy Events Centre. 7pm - 9.30pm

Event Impressions 4

On Friday night, we will be holding the Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony at the Energy Events Centre. The theme for the dinner is ‘Around the world in 80 days…’. We encourage you to wear your national costume - New Zealand has many different cultures to celebrate. Here are some suggestions:

- Think about the province or city you were born in, or an icon of that place, for example the Statue of Liberty in New York; or
- Adopt another country for the evening - think about the places you've visited and all the places you've dreamed of visiting around the world, from Egypt to India to London and the American west.

Alternatively, you are welcome to come in black tie or evening gown, business suit or cocktail wear.
