India Australia Business & Community Awards 2018

The India Australia Business & Community Awards is an experience like none other.

Celebrate the Australia India relationship at a unique, meeting of minds Gala. Exchange success stories, entrepreneurial ideas, and tales of community leadership in the presence of His Excellency Dr. A.M. Gondane, High Commissioner of India to Australia.

Immerse yourself in a true VIP experience as you intermingle with the ‘Who’s Who’ of the India-Australia relationship, including former Australian test cricketers, emerging  sporting prodigies, Miss Australia 2018, Celina Lazarus, and a number of Australian ministerial delegates. Be sure to dress glamorously, as IABCA Panelist Anupam Sharma will be filming interviews with guests for his upcoming documentary film, 'Bollywood Downunder!'

As the doors to Brisbane City Hall open, marked by the thunderous sounds of Bollywood and a 3,000 year old martial arts ritual, the aroma of traditional Indian cuisine will drown out any remnants of nine to five monotony.

Held together by our high-profile Master of Ceremonies, Kartik Mohandas, Media Personality and TV Presenter, the fifth annual India Australia Business & Community Awards will be interlaced with incredible multicultural performances designed especially for our IABCA audience. Tonight is all about you.

Treat yourself to a three-course, five-star meal coupled with unlimited beverage service, and allow your senses to be overwhelmed by professionally choreographed dispersions of colour, song and dance, all packed into a streamlined order of events, just for you.

Watch on as we recognise outstanding businesses, professionals and community leaders as they are recognised for their monumental contributions to the India Australia Space, and celebrated for achievements that extend beyond the horizons of their individual ambitions.
