The sixth annual Plumbing and Fire Industry Awards (PFIA) were held Thursday 17 March 2022 at Crown Palladium.
More than 500 guests came together for the industry event, which had been rescheduled twice due to COVID, to celebrate the achievements of committed professionals who excel in their trade or whose work has made a great impact on their company or the industry.
Event MC Lehmo kicked off the entertainment with a few laughs and reminded us all how great it was to be back at events…in person, while Kate Ceberano and band belted out a collection of original songs and covers that got the crowd up on the dancefloor.
18 Award winners were crowned on the night.
