IN PICTURES: Hall of Fame Inductees Lunch - Part 1 (54 photos)

The fifth Hall of Fame Inductees Lunch was held at The Studio at the top of Sydney Tower with its panoramic views of the city and suburbs. It was hosted by ARN President and Publisher, Susan Searle. Seventeen inductees attended the highly popular and memorable lunch this year for three hours of fine food, networking, discussion and several wine tastings. A strong 50-minute discussion focusing on current trends and directions within the channel was a highlight of the day. A toast was raised in memory of industry stalwart and former AIIA CEO, the late Ian Birks, who passed away recently. Unable to attend were Scott Frew, Steve Nola, Steve Murphy, Wendy O'Keeffe, Laurie Sellers, Jon Shein, Nick Verykios and John Walters. Photos by ARN Editorial Director, Mike Gee.
