FinanceAsia held its second annual Awards Dinner in Sydney in February at what is becoming its signature venue - the harbourkitchen&bar restaurant at the Park Hyatt. The room overlooks the harbour and the Sydney Opera House, and this year 150 issuers and dealmakers came from around the country to attend the event. There were also a number of guests from New Zealand who were there to collect the award for Best New Zealand Deal - a new category to the awards line-up.
Several successful issuers collected awards and made appreciation speeches, including Pacific Brands, Harvey Norman, Westfield, Macquarie Airports and Connect East.
Citibank picked up a box of Blue Metal Vineyard wine as the winners of the night's trivia quiz, and other guests received cigars, restaurant vouchers and roses in the lucky door prize draw.
