Meet the biggest names in business at our flagship Annual Dinner.

The CBI Annual Dinner will be taking place on 17 May 2017 at Grosvenor House on Park Lane, London.

The dinner will unite over 1000 of the biggest and brightest names in business for an evening of engaging conversation, intimate networking and insightful guest speeches.

Our Annual Dinner speeches are renowned for their calibre and this year’s speech will be no exception, with a high profile guest delivering a keynote address.

The evening is a fantastic opportunity to establish new connections with senior influencers, nurture relationships with existing clients, raise money for charity, and to enjoy CBI’s flagship black tie dinner.

There is an early bird discount available for CBI standard members on all bookings made before 31 March 2017. Book your place and experience our most prestigious dinner for yourself.

Supporting a good cause

This year the dinner will be raising funds for The Prince's Trust. The Prince’s Trust helps disadvantaged young people to get their lives on track. It supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion. Many of the young people helped by The Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or have been in trouble with the law. The Trust’s programmes give vulnerable young people the practical and financial support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Three in four young people supported by The Prince’s Trust move into work, education or training. The Prince of Wales’s charity has helped 825,000 young people since 1976 and supports over 100 more each day.

In the year ahead, The Trust aims to support 60,000 vulnerable young people across the UK, helping to give them the skills and confidence to find a job. We hope that all guests that attend the dinner will help us to support The Trust by giving generously.
