This year the location held sentimental value being the 10-year anniversary of the all-white event –  guests returned to where it all begin – Jack Poole Plaza – after a stellar Peroni Nastro Azzurro sponsored pre-event at the historic Vancouver Club.

Upon arriving at the Vancouver Club, media and VIP guests were greeted by Kate MacDougall (Camber Communications), introduced to the Peroni cocktails – yes, beer cocktails are a thing! – and ventured out to the garden to enjoy the company of the city’s movers and shakers.
