Gala Dinner

Wednesday 1 June 2022, 6:30pm – 11:00pm

Grand Ballroom, Four Seasons Hotel Sydney

The annual Gala Dinner – to be held at the Grand Ballroom (pictured below) of the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney – is a much anticipated event throughout the Disability Employment Services sector. Guests will enjoy fine food and drinks at a formal, three-course dinner, along with music to dance the night away to. We encourage delegates to come dressed in your glamorous and brilliant best!

The evening will also feature the Hall of Fame Award Ceremony, acknowledging excellence, innovation and long-term commitment to the evolution of disability employment in Australia (see some of 2019’s inductees below).

Following 2019’s sell out event, we expect to enjoy the evening with up to 200 guests. The 2022 Gala Dinner will be a great night of amazing food, networking, dancing, drinks and fun. Don’t forget to book in when registering for the conference!
