Meet the Maker Networking Dinner

Tuesday 3 July, 2018
Grand Chancellor Hobart

Meet the Makers is a great opportunity to taste the best Tasmania has to offer and meet the producers first hand in an informal stand up function. Some table seating will be available but delegates are encouraged to network and explore each of the food stalls.

There will be live entertainment with food and drinks provided by the Grand Chancellor Hobart, complimented by food stations staffed by local producers:

  • Tassal - Australia’s largest producer of Tasmanian grown Atlantic salmon where you will be able to enjoy cold and hot smoked and house cured salmon.
  • Barilla Bay Oysters - Live shucking station and oyster display.
  • Grandvewe Cheeses - High-quality sheep cheese. Sample white pearl, sapphire blue, pampino, blondie and brebichon cheese (subject to product availability).
  • Wine tastings from some of Tasmania’s best fine cool climate wineries - Milton Vineyard and Bream Creek.

Plan to make the most of the dinner. Like the conference itself, it is all about the networking. Use it as an opportunity to see people you don’t get a chance to catch up with very often or to get to know someone new. There will also be entertainment for those who wish to while the night away with those who have “networked".

Tickets: Included in full registration. Tickets are an additional cost of $135 for guests and day registrations.
