On 22 March, Advantage Austria Sydney invited to a special evening reception held atop the spectacular rooftop terrace of the Museum of Contemporary Art, overlooking Sydney Harbor and the Opera House.

Well over 200 invited guests had the opportunity to meet the directors of Austrian subsidiaries who had come together from all over Australia and New Zealand for two days of business discussions and networking, as well as a high-level business delegation from Austria headed by the President of the Viennese Chamber of Commerce, Walter Ruck.  

After a tasting session guided by the renowned Austrian-Australian winemaker Bert Salomon, exclusive to the conference participants and selected industry VIPs, the Evening Gala was opened by The Hon. Nick Greiner, Chairman of the European Australian Business Association and former Premier of New South Wales.

Thanks to the generous support of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, the guests were presented with a comprehensive line-up of spectacular Whites and Reds from various Austrian wine regions (click here [pdf, 502.7kb] to download the teasting notes).
