Golden Masquerade Ball

Date: Thursday 17 October 2019
Time: 7.00pm - 10.30pm 
Venue: Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, BelleVue Ballroom

Sponsored by IDP Education

You are cordially invited to celebrate IDP’s 50th Golden Anniversary with an evening of dining, dancing and entertainment. 


Golden masquerade dress code

“Find a mask and wear it well, so your true identity no-one can tell.”

The dress code for the evening is black tie optional, with a touch of gold and a mask.

Gentlemen are encouraged to wear attire that suits a black-tie dress code, e.g. tuxedo or a dark suit with a shirt and tie.

Ladies may want to wear a floor-length gown, or a knee-length cocktail dress, a pant suit or dressy separates.

Remember to add a touch of gold to your outfit!

Night's schedule

Guests will be greeted upon arrival at 7.00pm with beverages and canapés served in the Summer Garden, while they mingle with old friends and make some new ones. Guests will then be invited into the Bellevue Ballroom to share a tantalising three-course meal.  The band will start up mid-way through the night, inviting you to hit the dancefloor with your best moves. Keen to bust more moves?  The band will play old favourites and new tunes to keep you partying well into the night.  


Please bring your conference name badge with you to the dinner – it doubles as your entry ticket. On your name badge, you will see a small icon, which will indicate how many tickets you have (one for yourself, and any additional ones for guests).

If you have RSVPed for the dinner, but are no longer attending, please let us know at the Registration Desk to assist with catering numbers.


  • The conference dinner is included in the full conference registration options; however, social events are offered on a first-come basis and may reach capacity before the registration closing date (8 October 2019).
    You must RSVP on your registration form in order to secure a ticket.

  • Delegates may purchase one additional ticket for a guest.
  • Delegates only attending one day, can purchase one additional ticket for themselves.
  • Delegates only attending the pre-conference sessions on Tuesday cannot purchase social event tickets.

Getting there and away

Guests should plan their arrival at the convention centre by 7 pm.

There will be no pre-arranged transportation, as the dinner is located at the convention centre, within walking distance of most conference hotels.
