LANZBC members and friends enjoyed a fabulous night at the Seafarers Club in Auckland on Thursday 26th October to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the LANZBC. A capacity crowd enjoyed the delicious offerings from the renowned Ostro Restaurant and Seafarers bar, while enjoying the views of the Waitemata Harbour and participating in some enthusiastic networking.

MC Cori Gonzalez-Macuer led the formalities, enlightening guests with his personal connections with Latin America, before introducing Heather Kawan of the LANZBC, and Matthew O'Meagher of the Latin American Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence, the event's Platinum sponsor.

Gerry Williams, of Pacific Basin Exports - one of (if not the) longest standing members of the LANZBC and one of the original board members of the Chile/New Zealand Business Council, entertained those in attendance with his stories of Latin America circa 1970's.

John Flowers and Felicity Rogers of Dance Pasion wowed the crowd with an extraordinary tango routine, before DJ Bobby Brazuka saw the evening out with a crowd pleasing set that saw a mixture of samba, cha-cha and salsa on the dance floor - surely a first for an LANZBC event?

The Board of the LANZBC would like to thank the event sponsors: the Latin American CAPE, CBL Insurance and LATAM Airlines for supporting the 20th anniversary celebration. We'd also like to thank LANZBC members Active Adventures, Air New Zealand, Language Links and T&G Global, together with the Crowne Plaza Hotel Queenstown and Southern Discoveries for sponsoring our main prize draw of the night - a trip for two to Queenstown. Thank you also to Fonterra for providing a delicious Kapati Cheese hamper, and to Lifestream International for the goody bags.

Thank you to all those who came along and celebrated with us - you made the night one to remember.
