2017 Annual Dinner
The sleek contemporary atmosphere of the iconic Touring Hall at the Melbourne Museum provided the perfect backdrop for the Committee’s 2017 annual black tie dinner on Thursday 11 May. It was especially fitting that we came together in a space that promotes understanding of our past, to help us prepare for our future.
At this year’s dinner we celebrated our collective efforts in LEADING MELBOURNE 4.0 as we highlighted the work achieved through our flagship Taskforce and shared our vision for a prosperous and liveable Greater Melbourne moving towards 2030. On the night, Committee for Melbourne CEO Martine Letts unveiled the MELBOURNE 4.0 summary report. Read the MELBOURNE 4.0 summary report.
