The Gala Dinner includes the presentation of the 2017 AMMA Industry Awards. Covering everything from HR excellence and recruitment innovation to gender diversity, Indigenous employment and training initiatives, the Awards recognise the excellence of individuals and organisations across workforce-related professions in our sector.

Now in its 10th year, the 2017 AMMA Industry Awards recognises excellence in Australia’s mining, oil, gas and allied industries for accomplishments across many categories.

All awards are uniquely manufactured by AMMA Associate Member HW Holdsworth Recognition and Rewards, hand-made using metals mined in Australia and produced and used by AMMA members.
