The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre showed off its renowned creative flair at a dinner for special guests and hosted buyers at the recent Australian Business Events Expo.
More than 50 guests attended the event, with a dramatic opening performance by the Qantas Choir setting the tone for a remarkable evening.
Sydney’s skyline provided a glittering backdrop as the Centre’s award-winning team of chefs dazzled buyers with a menu of gourmet local produce.
As they moved between three separate dining stations especially created for the event, buyers indulged in a smorgasbord of tastes from Oberon truffle risotto with a touch of Pyengana cheddar to torched fig on brioche toast with wasabi sorbet.
The creations of Executive Chef Uwe Habermehl were matched with top Australian wines presented by the Centre’s Sommelier William Wilson.
The team’s efforts earnt them a great round of applause from guests, who were overwhelmed with the event.
In the words of Forum Group Managing Director Leanne Constantino, it was a great concept. “Food was delicious, chefs were inspirational, wine was amazing and company was lovely,” Ms Constantino said.
Guests at the July dinner included buyers and organisers from the USA, UK, Asia and Australia.
