HBAA chair, Chris Parnham, hosted the evening, which included entertainment from The Globe Girls, along with a stage set and compilation of West End musicals performed by The Westenders.
A specially devised version of TV hit Pointless was presented by Parnham and HBAA executive director Juliet Price.
The Tim Gasson Memorial Award, which recognises outstanding contribution and promotion of the association, was made to Stephen Usher. Usher, who is managing director of Usher Consultancy, has worked in the industry for 27 years and was HBAA chair in 2010.
Monies were raised for the chairman’s charity, The Make a Difference Trust, through both the online auction and contributions on the night and will go to help support people living with HIV and AIDS.
Parnham also announced ambitions to grow the association's membership by 20% in 2014.
Parnham said: "The HBAA annual dinner is a personal highlight and, with membership at an all-time high, it was great to see so many members and sponsors under one roof.
"Once again we challenged the association’s norms and the feedback from Friday has been fabulous!
"My entire first year in the post has been an amazing experience and all of the committees have strived to make positive changes for our members and future talent. I am thrilled to be able to continue the work I’ve started and to keep driving HBAA as a definitive voice of the industry into 2014 and beyond."
