Attendees were encouraged to mingle and network by being given the name tag of another guest they did not know so they could find its owner during the night.

There was also a panel discussion with guests Rick Fenny, Lisa George, Clint Johnston and Joel Jackson, who talked about their experiences, challenges and achievements during their professional lives in the Pilbara.
