Photo special: inside the 2018 Australian Drinks Awards
There was an amazing buzz in the Ivy Ballroom for the 2018 Australian Drinks Awards.
More than 400 people gathered on Thursday, September 13, for a reimagined awards ceremony that celebrated the innovations and achievements of the Australian drinks industry.
The Drinks Association created three new brand categories for the awards - Fan Favourite, Emerging Brand and Most Distinctive Brand - and expanded the supplier awards, plus added a Contribution to Industry category, to align with the industry’s focus on diversity, inclusion and social responsibility.
The MC for the awards was comedian, writer and maths whizz Adam Spencer, who entertained attendees and lead them through the night.
The Drinks Association CEO Georgia Lennon and Chair Ralph Dunning also addressed guests and welcomed them to the event.
