PAST EVENTS

The 2015 Western Sydney Awards for Business Excellence (WSABE) took place on Friday 14th August at WatervieW in Bicentennial Park.

Guests glided across the red carpet serenaded with a string quartet by the Australian Youth Orchestra as they were greeted with a glass of champagne and invited to pose in front of the 2015 WSABE media wall which was camouflaged with the supporting and category partners.

The Gala dinner hosted over 440 Western Sydney businesses who were treated to chef specials and dynamic performances by Packemin Productions; Phantom of the Opera and Back to the 80s.

The fish centrepieces were a conversation piece as guests were asked to come up with a name for their fish and the WSABE Committee formed a judging panel to announce the winner.

The Gala Dinner featured a live Instagram and Twitter wall displaying all #WSABE2015 posts.

Halfway through the night, the hashtag was a trending topic in Australia ranking number 5 according to a number of trend research accounts including Trends In Australia.
