Where - Ivy Ballroom

It's at the Ivy Ballroom. 330 George St. (It's inside the box made by Martin Place, Hunter St, George St and Pitt St.) and we want to see you lining up and getting you're names ticked off by 6:50 so we kick things off as soon as the bartab opens up!

Wear - cocktail / formal gear.

Confused? Alright:

Guys: Wear a darker suit, match your blazer and trousers and keep your neck feeling fly with a tie or bowtie. If you want to look extra shmick you muight chuck on a vest, or stand out with a bit more colour in your neck-piece, pocket square, socks, jewelry, undies, whatever.

Gals: This is basically an invitation for you too walk the line between your favourite formal kit and what you can have fun in. So strap on your heels and strap yourself in for a big night (maybe chuck some thongs in a bag to give yourself a rest on the way home!)

When - Friday 5th of June 7-11
Rock up just before 7 so we get everyone in asap. The venue is going to be hell stacked so this might take a while. We'll have a bartab running the whole night and a three course meal, interspersed with brief words from the Engsoc Chairperson, The Deputy Dean Prof. David Waites and a special guest speaker (More on that below). Then at closing time, it's time to move on. Last year the team at the Merivale gave us entry to the ivy nightclub and we're in discussion with them again this year so fingers crossed for that. But if not, we'll just go where the night takes us and try really (read: not very) hard not to ruin our formal garms.

Who - Hamish Hawthorne, CEO of ATP Innovations
Hamish is a Mechanical Engineer and UNSW Alumni who (for a start) is the CEO of ATP Innovations, a business incubator owned by UNSW, USYD, UTS and ANU. It take small scale teams with big ideas and sends them into success locally and globally.

On top of that he also co-founded the Sydney Angels, a investment team connecting investors and entrepreneurs (think Shark Tank, but less emotional close ups of sticky notes and more funding world changing ideas).

And then there's also the 9 other companies he's either director or founder of. Honestly, check out his Linkedin, it's longer than most wikipedia pages.

Thats it, that's the update. There's a chance we're getting some love from Uber but it's a little slim I'm afraid to say.

Thank you so much for coming out in force, I can't wait to see you all there.
