Gala dinner & welcome reception
The welcome reception takes place on Saturday 17 March from 6-8pm at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole and is free of charge to all delegates*. Please join us at the pre-conference reception in the Monarch Suite to meet with fellow delegates, exhibitors, speakers, Council members and College staff in an informal environment. You can also take the opportunity to beat the Sunday morning rush and register for the conference in advance.
Upon arrival, please register at the conference registration desk, located just inside the Monarch Suite entrance.
*does not include exhibition-only tickets
If you have booked a place at the gala dinner, your ticket will be included in your registration envelope. The dinner takes place on Sunday 18 March at The Vox, Resorts World, Birmingham, B40 1PU.
Please note that it is not possible to buy tickets for the gala dinner at the conference.
The dress code for the event is black tie and it will begin at 7pm with a drinks reception, followed by a three course dinner, entertainment and a live band. There will be a bar at the venue. The event will end at midnight.
The College will not be organising coaches to/from the Vox as it is only a short walk from the Hilton. If you do wish to drive, there is ample free parking in the East 5 car park and you will need to get your parking ticket validated so that you do not get charged.
