Big Day – The BAA Xmas Lunch & Bluewire Media Christmas Drinks
Anyone would think that designing & developing websites was thirsty work with the Bluewire Media team heading along to three big events last Friday. Work was put aside as we all took half-days and attended the Brisbane Advertising Association’s (BAA) Annual Christmas Lunch at the convention centre which was followed by the official after party at the Melbourne Hotel, which was then followed by the exclusive Bluewire Media Christmas Drinks at the Orient Hotel.
The Bluewire team was joined by our SEO & SEM partners & friends, Reload Media at the lunch and then again at the Orient for some Christmas celebrations. The food was good, the drinks cold and the entertainment hilarious! Arj Barker had the crowd in good spirits over lunch firing a few low blows to the local advertising scene along with his usual comedy gold routine.
There were plenty of prizes up for grabs at lunch with over $10,000 in cash and prizes enticing punters to fork out for the raffle tickets for the charity fund raising effort. The BAA is to be commended for its great contribution to charity donating $5,000 each to the Hear & Say Centre, the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation and the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Well done BAA!
It was a massive day and lots of fun was had by all. (You could almost say a few people had a little too much fun which I am definitely guilty of!) However with Operation Unite in full swing that weekend, you will be happy to know that no Bluewire Media staff members were caught up in the police crackdown on party revellers. Everyone was well behaved and a good, safe night was enjoyed by all which was a fitting celebration of all our hard work this year!

Plus here’s a video of some BAA streamer madness. You’ll notice Nic cops one in his eye, but he made a full recovery!
