CBI Midlands Annual Dinner 2021

Join the CBI Midlands team at this year’s Annual Dinner. These dinners have always been stand-out events in the business calendar, and as the UK begins to emerge from the worst of the pandemic we want to showcase and celebrate the resilience of the region’s business community.

This event will feature high calibre speakers from the business and political spheres, an audience of more than 150 senior business leaders, as well as the opportunity to exchange ideas, and build and extend networks across a diverse range of contacts.

CBI Director-General Tony Danker will join us for his first official in-person visit to the region. He will give a short address to update guests on our Seize the Moment campaign, and will join a panel for a short Question Time-style discussion with other key regional figures. 

Annual Dinner speakers confirmed:

  • Tony Danker, Director-General, CBI 
  • Ed Clarke, VP Ground Operations, FedEx
  • Darren Wilson, CEO, LKAB Minerals
  • Clare James, Managing Director, East Midlands Airport
  • Rachael Greenwood, Executive Director, Midlands Engine 
  • Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chairman and Founder, Morningside Pharmaceuticals

We know how valuable these evenings can be, offering the opportunity to meet, engage and most importantly reconnect with senior business leaders from the Midlands. This year's Annual Dinner will offer all of this, as well as entertainment for you and your guests.

Attend this event to:

  • Develop new business relationships, share experiences or entertain clients and celebrate business success, whilst enjoying a fine dining experience, including a four-course dinner with wine
  • Get up to date with the latest insights from some of the most important stakeholder engagements the CBI is currently having
  • Ensure your voice is heard at the highest levels of the CBI by sharing your personal views and experience.

Who should attend?

This event welcomes all business leaders and is open to members and non-members alike.

As this event is always a sell-out, we encourage you to book now, to avoid any disappointment.
