    Hi everyone! email messages don't appear to be sending (so apologies if you're seeing this for the second time)!

    For those who have registered plus ones and guests, please make sure their names are also on the security list by emailing Susan O’Neill on [masked]. If you get stuck on the night, please ask for Susan at the front desk. Don't forget photo ID!

    Thanks again to the Australian Trade Commission and the Consulate for co-hosting!

      It's startup people so business casual or whatever you wear day-to-day (unless you work from home in PJs!).

      No PJ's please guys :) Business casual or business is fine for the Australian Consulate-General.
