Grace Hotel Sydney – Gala Dinner Awards Night

The Grace Hotel is a grand ol hotel that has kept it’s charm and has been well kept.

Considering the Grace Hotel in now towered amongst building twice it’s height it carry’s it’s own.

Walking in from either entrance brings you too the warm and friendly Grace Hotel concierge to greet you and show you to the lifts.

The Grace Brothers had grand visions in 1920s. They wanted a showpiece of their successful retail business. And that they did just that and didn’t disappoint even in the neighbourhood of the very grand Queen Victoria Building near by.

The Grace Hotel is a great example of Neo-Gothic architecture with an Art Deco interior and oozes style. Great for formal events.

“The annual Sound+Image Awards dinner has been an essential event in the calendar of the audio-visual industry for more than 25 years.

Held every year since 1989, the prestigious Sound+Image Awards recognise excellence in the design, manufacture and installation of audio, home entertainment and incar equipment.”

Platinum Partners for the awards evening were The Chester Group, organisers of the Australian Hi-Fi & AV Show.

Relationships

We’ve worked a few times with the publishers of the Sound and Image magazine. So when there was a chance to photograph the Awards night we jumped at the chance. Being local in the Sydney CBD, and a keen interest in music, recorded and live, this was sure to be a great shoot.

Jez Ford was the Master of Ceremonies and certainly looked like he had a great time presenting the night. The 2018 Awards and Gala Dinner was held at the Grace Hotel Sydney.

Special mention of congratulations to John Martin, for the lifetime achievement award. Photo below.
