NAFDA Supplier & Member of the Year Awards 2017!

On Friday 21st July 2017, NAFDA’s Annual Supplier and Member of the Year Awards Night was held at National Wine Centre in Adelaide to celebrate the outstanding achievements of our Suppliers and Members.

This year NAFDA took the opportunity to improve the awards overall structure, eliminating the over and under $3-$12 million categories and moving to regional and category winners with an overarching winner in both member and supplier. These changes reflect NAFDA’s desire to recognise excellence on a more consistent basis and importantly align to bona fide industry benchmarking.

NAFDA would like to take the opportunity to again recognise and thank our Supplier sponsor partners for the 2017 Supplier and Member of the Year Gala Awards, and congratulate all finalists and winners on their outstanding success!
