MLAA Conference & Trade Expo
Kardinia Park, Geelong Victoria 19-21 October 2017
LSC were delighted to exhibit once again at the MLAA Conference & Exhibition, held this year at the newly renovated Kardinia Park, Geelong. The program included a great mix of business and skills sessions, a trade exhibition and the opportunity to network with old colleagues, friends and suppliers.
Back by popular demand, this year’s Golf Day was held at the world-class 13th Beach Golf Links Resort at Barwon Heads. The AGM featured keynote speaker and triple Paralympic gold medallist, Dylan Allcot, who’s speech was both captivating and thought provoking.
The Gala dinner on the Saturday night attracted over 200 people which made for a sensational evening. The Master of Ceremonies for the Gala Dinner was Ian Cover from hit ABC Radio football comedy show, The Coodabeen Champions. With the help of fellow Coodabeen Champions member, Greg Champion, Ian kept the evening light-hearted and full of laughter. Special LSC guests to note included Stuart & Margaret Johnson and Ian & Annette Boyd.
Highlights included the announcement of the winner of the 2017 John Andrew Apprentice of the Year Competition and the awarding of Life Memberships to Cliff Forrester and Norm Axford – two well-known and well-respected locksmithing identities.
Congratulations to Zach Winslade from Independent Locksmiths & Security in Parramatta for winning the John Andrew Apprentice of the Year competition. Once again, ABUS & Silca sponsored this prestigious award and we are sure Zach and his mentor will nd visiting the ABUS facility in Germany and the Silca facility in Italy both rewarding and enjoyable.
