In Adelaide this April, as the AFL buzz takes over and the State comes alive with Gather Round – the Showcase SA Gather Round Lunch is shaping up to be the highlight of the business and sports calendar.

Held in the Grand Ballroom of Hilton Adelaide on Friday 5th April, from 11:00am – 2:30pm, this is not an event to be missed. It is where the excitement of the AFL season blends seamlessly with meaningful business networking, all while supporting a great cause with the Jodi Lee Foundation. For $200 +gst, you can secure your ticket for a two-course luncheon and beverage package or purchase a table for $2,000 +gst.

Kicking off with an opening by the Premier of South Australia, Peter Malinauskas, the lunch sets a high bar for prestige right from the start.

But the heart of the event lies in its speakers, each a legend in their own right within the AFL world. Their stories are set to captivate, and they’ll no doubt offer insights that resonate well beyond the sports field.

Andy Maher is a staple in sports media with a career spanning over three decades. Known for his versatile roles across television, radio, and print, Andy brings a depth of knowledge and passion for sport that’s hard to match. As the host of Channel 7’s The Front Bar, his engaging storytelling and insider knowledge offer a unique perspective on the game that fans adore.

Billy Brownless will likely bring a mix of humour and poignant reflections from his time on the field. A celebrated forward for Geelong, Billy’s knack for finding the goal when it counted made him a legend. His journey from a high-flying schoolboy star to an AFL powerhouse, and now a beloved media personality, mirrors the highs and lows of professional sports. His stories will offer a glimpse into the life of an athlete who’s lived through the game’s biggest moments.

Cameron Mooney’s narrative is one of passion and triumph. Drafted to North Melbourne and later becoming a key player for Geelong, Cameron’s career is a testament to hard work and dedication. Known on the field for his powerful forward play and off it for his insightful commentary, Cameron’s transition from AFL champion to respected analyst will provide valuable lessons on adaptation and success.

Finally, Mark Bickley rounds out the lineup as the MC. His journey from the SANFL to leading the Adelaide Crows to back-to-back premierships is the stuff of local legend. His insights into leadership, teamwork, and overcoming challenges will resonate not just with sports fans but with anyone looking to lead their team to success. And from a true SA great!

What sets the Showcase SA Gather Round Lunch apart is its blend of sports passion with business networking, all for a good cause. It’s a chance to rub shoulders with the who’s who of South Australia, share insights, and forge connections that could shape the future of your business or career. And with every ticket contributing to the fight against bowel cancer through the Jodi Lee Foundation, it’s also an opportunity to give back to the community.

Sponsored by some of the biggest names in the business and sports world – including Corporate Traveller, Sports Entertainment Network, PointsBet, Encore and Hilton Adelaide – this lunch promises to have good food, great company, and even greater causes.
