Winners announced at the PBS Annual Awards Gala Dinner!
The recently renovated Cockle Bay Room at the International Convention Centre, Sydney was the place to be on Saturday 26th August, where 140 glamourous and excited guests arrived for PBS’ 2nd Annual Awards Gala Dinner.
The evening kicked off with champagne on arrival and photo booth fun, with the hundreds of salons and beauty therapists mingling and sharing their experiences of Beauty Expo earlier that day. The evening’s host and MC, Rebecca George started the official festivities by introducing the wonderful James English Band, and encouraging PBS’ salons, partners and international guests, including Youngblood’s global educator and MUA Philip Luque, Bestow Beauty founder Janine Tait, Image Skincare’s international educator Dawn Clifford, and Cherry Blooms’ founder and CEO Jellaine Dee, to take their seats for the night ahead.
Guests were treated to a 3-course meal while mentalist, Phoenix mesmerised the audience with his Mind Magic and Comedy Show.
The PBS Awards ceremony kicked into full gear with winners announced in 11 categories and runner’s up in 3 categories. This year was also the first year that salons were recognised for their passion, marketing and retail achievements, with three new awards added to the mix including the “PBS Passion Award”, “Marketing Excellence Award” and “Retail Therapist of the Year Award”.
However, the night belonged to Bella Spazio who took home two awards including Cherry Blooms Stockist of the Year and the prestigious Salon of The Year Award!
