89th Annual Dinner/COVID 19 Update

Thu 30 Jul. 2020

Our 89th Annual Dinner due to take place on Friday 20th March 2020 at the Princess Suite, Reading FC Conference and Events, Madejski Stadium, Reading to celebrate our Centenary and postponed until 18th September will now have to take place in 2021. Whilst conference and exhibition venues can re-open from 1st October based on the current Government guidelines and our proposed numbers of 200+ guests the event will not be able to proceed as planned. The Chartered Insurance Institute have also issued guidance to all local insurance institutes stating that we should not hold any face to face events until 2021 at the earliest. We plan to hold the dinner in March 2021 and with various dates to avoid due to other local institute dinners taking place across the region, the Cheltenham Gold Cup on 19th March and London market insurance events, we have two dates in mind- Friday 12th March or Friday 26th March 2021. As our dinner this year was to be our flagship event for the Centenary, we want to hold it rather than just cancelling. Also we would like to have as many there as possible for the event. We are in consultation with all the parties/contractors that we had engaged for the event to establish their availability for a 2021 rearranged date and further details will follow.
