Event Calendar

IPF Midlands Region Annual Dinner 2021




6:30PM – 2:00AM

ICC, Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2EA

Booking is now open for the 2021 IPF Midlands Annual Dinner.

Covid-Related Matters
Those attending must adhere to any government/ICC restrictions in place at the time of the event.

While there are currently no government restrictions on events of this type, we are carrying out an extensive risk assessment with the ICC to maximise the safety of everyone attending the Dinner as much as possible. As part of this, we will:

Restrict the maximum capacity to 400 places (usually this is 620). This enables us to increase the spacing between tables and allows us to have more space for post-Dinner drinks at the back of the room, reducing overall crowding when networking. We will also be limiting the number of people seated at each table to 10 and using the ICC’s larger tables where possible.

Ticket Price: £115 + VAT (£138 inclusive of VAT @ 20% per person). A table to seat 10 people will be £1,150 + VAT (£1,380 inc. VAT). The ticket price excludes wine and other beverages.

Hosted tables of 10 people can be purchased. In addition to tables, there may also be a number of individual places for members or members with a smaller number of guests. Where these are accepted, they will be allocated to a shared table, the composition of which, in terms of other organisations, cannot be guaranteed.

* Bookings can only be taken from IPF members who have renewed for the 2021/22 subscription year.

* Bookings will be accepted on a first come, first served basis in the order of receipt of a signed booking form only. Tables/tickets CANNOT be reserved!

* Organisations wishing to book one table will need to have one IPF member in the Midlands

* Organisations wishing to book two tables will need to have a minimum of one member in the Midlands and no fewer than four more members in the Midlands and/or other UK regions

Dress code: Black Tie
