On 3 November The Asian Executive hosted its 5th annual Melbourne Cup Carnival Charity Ball at the Palladium at Crown.
It is a humbling experience to be able to bring together over 1,000 top business executives from around Asia and Australia to celebrate the quintessential Australian tradition – the Melbourne Cup Carnival. As is our wont, we do so with what we believe to be with style and panache. We featured Australia’s best choir – the Australian Girls Choir singing the Australian National Anthem in Australia’s most prestigious ballroom – The Palladium at Crown with our co-host, one of the world’s most prestigious horse racing clubs, The Victoria Racing Club.
Our featured entertainment, a tribute to the music of Michael Jackson brought the audience to their feet with many commenting that this was the best black-tie event gala event they had attended this year.
Our ultimate objective of furthering Asia Australia engagement would not be possible without the support of our principal sponsor, Lexus Australia, our 2017 partner sponsor, Pomeroy Pacific, our major sponsors, Multiplex and Pitcher Partners and our 2017 Strategic Alliance Partner, CBRE Melbourne. With such a distinguished gathering, we took the liberty of honoring individuals who are all high achievers in the area of Asia Australia engagement and for their work with The Asian Executive. We wish to thank The Hon. John Eren MP, Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Minister for Sports and Minister for Veterans for his kind participation in the award presentation.
