ACBC Vic Lunar New Year Celebration 2022

08 Dec 2021

The Australia China Business Council Victoria is back with one of our largest Lunar New Year celebrations to date!

Please note: In an effort to ensure your comfort and safety, we have made a slight change to our Lunar New Year Celebration to take into account the current conditions and are pleased to advise that we will now hold an exclusive corporate event in conjunction with South East Melbourne Phoenix (rather than a private cocktail party as originally planned). The event has the same price point and will be held within strict Vic Govt COVID regulations.

Upgraded to a premium meal, guests will be treated to exclusive dining with NBL Members in a private room at the John Cain Arena, open bar, reserved table seating, live entertainment, and VIP seats to watch the NBL regular season game featuring star Chinese player Zhou Qi playing for the South East Melbourne Phoenix against the Adelaide 36ers!

Tickets for this all-inclusive event are strictly limited.

You are invited to our 2022 Lunar New Year Celebration, the signature event in the ACBC Vic calendar, to mark the Year of the Tiger.

This year, we are excited to partner with the NBL and South East Melbourne Phoenix who have just signed on Chinese superstar Zhou Qi in a monumental deal for the 2022 season.

Celebrate the Year of the Tiger, dining in style with the who’s who of the Australia-China business community at John Cain Arena, the home court of the South East Melbourne Phoenix, before their game against the Adelaide 36ers.

Meet and mingle with key South East Melbourne Phoenix representatives, new friends and old! Following the function, stay and watch Chinese superstar Zhou Qi and the South East Melbourne Phoenix take on the Adelaide 36ers as a corporate guest – all included in the ticket price!

Our first face-to-face catchup for the year – you won’t want to miss this!
