President's Welcome

It is with great pleasure, that I introduce the third Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce Industry Awards and our centenary celebrations.

The VACC Industry Awards have been a great success over the past two years and we are delighted to announce that the 2018 VIA and Centenary Gala Dinner will be held at Crown Palladium on Saturday, 23 June 2018.

Being our centenary year, the event will provide a fabulous opportunity for the automotive industry to celebrate its rich history from the past 100 years, as well as bring together the very best in the industry as we award our members with the recognitions they deserve.

2018 sees the introduction of some exciting new award categories for accredited members and general members and will recognise individual achievement and company success. To see the categories please click here.

On behalf of VACC, I invite you to submit an application for the category in which you are accredited and that best reflects your area of expertise and accomplishment from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2017. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate to the industry what makes you or your business exceptional.
