The Markets community gathered to celebrate the people and culture of the horticulture industry at the 2022 Brisbane Produce Market Gala Dinner on Friday, 29 July.
Over 500 attendees donned their cocktail best and came together in the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre’s Plaza Ballroom to commemorate Brisbane Markets Limited (BML)’s 20 years of industry-based ownership of the Brisbane Markets with a fantastic night of food, entertainment and laughter.
Queensland’s Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries, Hon. Mark Furner opened the festivities, which included acknowledgement of 40 Year Service Award recipients, performances by percussion ensemble, SoundStruck and Australia’s number one stand-up ventriloquist, the hilarious Darren Carr.
BML’s Chair, Anthony Kelly, also paid tribute to his predecessor, Tony Joseph AM, who retired last year after 20 years as BML’s Chair.
The evening was made possible by BML and Brismark, who thank major sponsors Toyota Material Handling, New Era Technology, Advance Group, Origin Energy, Hopgood Ganim Lawyers, SBP Australia, Veolia, and Crisp Power & Control.
