16th September 2017 “Our AGM and Annual Dinner was one of the best ever, thanks to having it at a fantastic venue which ticked all the boxes for our members and guests. Will definitely hold our event at The Pier, Geelong sometime in the future. The venue was fantastic, ample space for what we needed. Guests were able to socialise, network, enjoy the music. The Terrace was ideal for the AGM. Great to have the bar in the room as well. Catering was magnificent, all courses and platters. The band was excellent, great reviews. Dance Floor was full. Guests didn’t want to leave which is a great sign for us as well as the venue. Access for parking or walking up The Pier was good.” – Gavin (CMPA Annual Dinner & AGM).
