On Wednesday evening 16th March we held the “Invitation Only” function which recognises all those people and companies who have made a significant contribution to the success of the Convention. What better way to say thank you than on Sydney Harbour on a luxurious vessel called “Pontoon” for a 2 hour cruise. This commenced at 6.30 pm so with daylight saving time there was certainly plenty of daylight to enjoy the sights of Sydney. There were some very spectacular sights also with a thunder and lightning storm over the Sydney Harbour Bridge soon after the cruise began. This event was sponsored by PALL Corporation and 110 delegates attended.
