2016 Awards of Excellence

Industry Awards

The 2016 Awards of Excellence have been announced!


Adelaide Oval once again held the industry night of nights, with the Ian McLachlan room’s superb view of the grounds and impeccable service from management and staff. The 130 guests definitely took note of the code “Dress to Impress” with an abundance of sparkles and finery throughout. Former Australian cricketer Wayne Phillips confirmed his reputation as Expert Master of Ceremonies, delivering a thoroughly engaging presentation. Entertainment for the evening, “The Incredibles” certainly lived up to their name, performing a fantastic dinner set and rocking the dancefloor once formalities were over.

Suzie Kent, Manager of the Swimming Pool & Spa Association of SA (SPASA SA) welcomed all, acknowledging the Sponsors and Judges and thanking them for their support.
