AustCham 35th Anniversary Dinner and Community Awards

Did you know that a 35th Year celebration is also known as the Coral Anniversary? Coral is believed to be endowed with sacred properties and is a symbol of wisdom, happiness and immortality. It is also used to attract success and wealth - which we wish upon all our members and friends of the Australia - Hong Kong business community!
Celebrate the long-standing connections between the Australian and Hong Kong business communities. The dinner offers guests an opportunity to recognise outstanding contributions with the Community Awards, as well as an evening of great Australian fun.

Annie Louey is an award-winning and multi-talented comedian and presenter who moves seamlessly between television, radio and stage. She is known for her rapidfire crowd work, blunt delivery and cheeky charm that allows her to get away with almost anything!
Her fan base is growing rapidly as she embarks on her fifth solo show ‘Gold’, debuting at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2023. This comes after Annie received a Moosehead Award for bold, innovative ideas to support her show ‘Annie Louey is Flirting with Death’ last year. Her confident stage presence earned her a spot touring around Australia with the Comedy Festival Roadshow.
Annie appears regularly on national television, having been a presenter and writer on ABC TV’s ‘China Tonight’ for the past four seasons, and a comedian on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s ‘Opening Night Allstars Supershow’. Her on-screen charisma as the host of the travel show ‘Rediscover Victoria’ led to a nomination for ‘Personality of the Year’ at the 2021 Antenna Awards for community television. The ‘Rediscover Victoria’ series will be coming to SBS in 2023.
Annie has also been recognised for her efforts behind the screen, having written for the final season of Rosehaven (ABC TV and Amazon Prime). More recently, she was one of six writers invited to take part in the Melbourne Theatre Company’s First Stage program, which culminated in a play reading by an ensemble of professional actors. Annie is now working on debuting a full-length play.
As a content creator, Annie’s web series ‘From the Hearse’s Mouth’ was selected for Sydney Web Festival. In the six-part series, Annie interviews comedians and performers like Claire Hooper and Dane Simpson about life and death, while driving in a vintage hearse.
Her ability to find the perfect balance between light and shade can partly be attributed to her experiences as a burns survivor. She first discovered the power of comedy while she was 16 and recovering at home from an accident. While she spent months off school, she watched every stand-up DVD she could get her hands on at the local Blockbuster store. What started as a way to kill time catapulted her into the world of stand-up. She entered the Comedy Festival’s Class Clowns competition in 2010 and became a national finalist.
Now, she is an ambassador for the burns and trauma charity, KIDS Foundation, while continuing to do weird and wacky things in the name of comedy. She’s eaten almost 150 unique potato chip flavours (which started as a segment on her radio show on JOY94.9). In her completely unsponsored opinion, the best flavour she’s tasted is Pringles Chicken Souvlaki.
Cancellations must be sent in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org four business days prior to the event. No shows will be charged.
