Monday 18 September:

Luxury Canal Cruise & Lunch at 'Glass'

Canal Cruise on 'Inspiration'

Our partner tour begins at the Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort and Spa, where our luxury cruiser “Inspiration” the most striking mid-sized luxury Motor Yacht on the Gold Coast, will take our group on board for one of the Gold Coasts most popular experiences – a personalised canal cruise, to enjoy this famous destination from the water - complete with a glass of bubbly!

Blessed with a few hundred kilometres of canals and rivers (446km to be precise), the Gold Coast's waterways are more than ten times longer than those of Venice.

Enjoy the hour-long canal cruise with commentary, that snakes through the Gold Coast wetlands. Glide past luxury waterfront homes, 5-star hotels like the Palazzo Versace and the high-end retail complex of Marina Mirage.

Lunch at Marina Mirage – “Glass” Restaurant

Following your personalised canal cruise, “Inspiration” will moor at Marina Mirage where a short stroll will take you to one of Surfers Paradise best restaurants. “Glass” awaits your dining pleasure for a relaxed two course lunch.

Having perfected the art of intimate meals, award-winning fare, and exquisite wines, Glass is also home to one of the most sought-after views of the Gold Coast. By day or by night, the views from this harbour establishment are simply stunning. 

We will arrange a short transfer back to the Marriott to have you back at 3.30pm to provide you plenty of time to prepare for the evening’s Gala Awards Dinner.

Convention Gala Awards Dinner

The annual Gala Dinner is the formal pinnacle of the steel industry's calendar and this year is no exception. The Ballroom of the Marriott Resort will host presentations of two national awards programs this year covering Health and Safety and Sustainability.

Entertainment at this year's dinner will be Mick Colliss. Mick tells a story of a man who desperately wanted to wear the green and gold and represent Australia! After numerous sports - from rugby to lawn bowls, he finally achieved his dream, just not in the way you think. Mick's is a laugh out loud true story about mateship, having a go and never giving up.

The Partner Package will also include a very special gift for each participant.
