The official reception/welcoming party/get-together that precedes Sunday's World Standard in Melbourne, AUS, was the occasion for the organisers and the sanctioning body to welcome the 75 couples from 46 countries to downunder.
The reception/party/gathering was held at maximum elevation available in Melbourne: 300 metres above the ground, on the Skydeck (the 88th floor) of the Eureka Tower. The latter is located on the southern banks of the Yarra river and perfectly positioned for 360 degree, floor-to-ceiling views encompassing Melbourne's sports precinct, Port Phillip Bay, Docklands and everything in between.
The 4-minute video below affords you at least some of the views that the participants got to enjoy from high up. And it provides a summary of the speeches held by those who make Sunday's event happen.
