Nursery & Garden Awards Gala Dinner 24 March 2015

Gala DinnerThe 2015 Nursery & Garden Awards will be announced on 24 March 2015. The beautiful riverside venue of Fenix Event Centre in Richmond in Victoria will play host to this year’s Gala Dinner where guests will be charmed by the quick wit and humour of MC Matthew Carroll.

This is the most glamorous event on the industry’s calendar and amidst the black ties and cocktail dresses of our brightest and boldest the results of the national awards for recognition will be announced.

The dinner is an excellent opportunity to enjoy a night of festivity with some of your closest colleagues and has been timed specifically for guests to enjoy the opening of the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show the following day.

Finalists for the categories were announced in December last year and some of those finalists underwent a second round of judging just this month. With the final determining interview for Heather Rumsey Young Leader Award to be conducted only days before the announcement, excitement is building for the much anticipated results.

The evening will be an intimate celebration of the best in the greenlife business and tickets to event are limited. Tickets can be purchased online HERE and are available at $165 per person or $1550 for a table of ten. With two thirds of available tickets sold finalists, supporters and industry alike are encouraged to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.

Opportunities exist to include material in the Gala Dinner gift bag and start from $150. If you are interested in taking up this opportunity, please email  We would like to thank our event sponsors Outdoor Design Source, Hort Journal, Garden City Plastics, HIA and the industry accreditation programs for their support, without which this event would not be possible.
