Often regarded as our most prestigious and anticipated night of the year, the DTC Annual Awards & Dinner is a special occasion dedicated to announcing the finalists and winners of our Member Awards – our first dinner in two years celebrates the centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force.
Join us at the Adelaide Convention Centre with Industry, Defence representatives and our wide range of DTC Members as we enjoy a delicious three course sit down dinner in celebration of successes in 2020 and beyond.
We look forward to congratulating our worthy winners of the Teaming, Resilient & Adaptive, and the Growing or Emerging Awards and listen to the inspirational speaker stories led by our MC for the evening. These awards invite member organisations to stand out from the competition, recognise staff for their contributions and proudly exhibit their successes.
We look forward to seeing you at an unmissable night in the DTC calendar.
