Join us for the Melbourne Noir à la mode-themed Gala Dinner on Thursday 9 May 2019.
The Art Deco style Mural Hall is a hidden treasure in Melbourne and will be the scene of the Gala Dinner. It's a stunning room - named for the beautifully painted murals on the walls. And the food will be just as magnificent!
Dress up in your favourite 1920s style - think flapper dresses with daring hemlines, (faux) furs, feathers, gloves, extravagent suits and brogues - and get ready to Lindy hop the night away!
Tickets cost $125.
IPEd is delighted to announce Susan Butler, AO as the first confirmed keynote speaker at the conference.
