2017 Awards Night

Welcome to the 2017 Awards Night

The RBMS Awards Night is on again! A night where rewarding our members and friends in the industry is the focus. A night to celebrate the achievements in our industry. A night for you to enjoy on Friday 27th October 2017 at the spectacular Fenix Events – Panorama Room

Awards will be presented on the night in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows allowing stunning views of the native gumtrees and Melbourne’s iconic Yarra River.

The evening will be the perfect opportunity to catch up with those you work alongside (or want to work alongside!). Whether you are coming from Melbourne or the regions, the venue is conveniently located, on Victoria Street, Richmond. A quick tram ride (109) from the city will see a stop just a stroll to the front door. For those that want to drive, parking is available for a small fee.
