CII Annual Dinner
Celebrating 104 years of the Insurance Institute of Swansea and West Wales
It is with great pleasure that we announce that The Insurance Institute of Swansea and West Wales Annual Dinner will be held at the Marriott Hotel, Swansea on the 25th November.
The Annual Dinner is always the highlight on the institute calendar, offering a fantastic evening of delicious food, fine wine and excellent networking. The institute's President, Andrew Boyt, would be delighted if you and your guests could join us for this very special occasion.
The ticket price has been held at the same as last year, with individual tickets costing £52 per person.
This includes a delicious three course meal and entertainment from our President and respected after dinner speakers including comedian Gareth Thomas.
Seating is arranged in tables of 10 so you can buy a full table for you and your guests or a few tickets and we will seat you with like minded diners.
This is a black tie event and Dinner Jackets with ties should be worn by the gentlemen and evening dresses or cocktail dresses by the ladies.
The bar in the Rhossili Room will open at 6.30pm followed by the call to Dinner in the Gower Suite at 7pm. After the formal Dinner we will have music and dancing to 1am.
The menu is set out below. If you and/or your guests have any dietary requirements or would prefer the vegetarian starters and/or mains, please contact our Dinner Secretary in advance of the event, so this can be arranged for you.
