The scorching February heat was no match for the passion that our guests brought along to WAGBA’s New Year’s Reception, held on the 1st of February at Matilda Bay Restaurant and Bar in Perth. This inaugural reception of the Association provided an outstanding opportunity for some 100 attendees to mingle, to network and to kickstart the hopefully successful year 2024. The general consensus of the evening was that it was most definitely the “hottest” gathering of the year.
