The annual All Star Bash event was held at Margaret Court Arena on Thursday night, with an event record of more than 580 of the industry’s best and brightest gathering to celebrate achievements in Australian online retail over the past 12 months.

Taking to the stage, sports broadcaster and host Hamish McLachlan greeted the audience, which included everyone from 2XU, JB-HiFi, Appliances Online and Booktopia to Crown Resorts, Catch Group, Woolworths and T2, to name just a few.

The All Star Category awards were also presented on the night to deserving retailers in recognition of their work within the Australian e-commerce space.

The biggest prize of all went to Woolworths which was named No. 1 Online Retailer of the year for the third year running, after ranking highly for acquisition, conversion, fulfilment and customer retention. Catch Group also cleaned up on the night, taking out four of the 19 All Star Category awards.
