 Presidential dinner

About the event

We are delighted to announce that the 2018 Presidential Dinner will return to the Brewery Chiswell St, London.

The dinner is an opportunity for housing professionals to meet, build new networks, and to relax and enjoy dinner in splendid surroundings. The event is attended by 600 of the most senior and influential people from across our sector and is always over-subscribed.

The dinner is also an important opportunity for our CIH President to meet colleagues from across the industry who are dealing with on-going changes to our sector in a turbulent and fast-changing environment. We’ll share our vision for CIH, for the sector and for the work we do to support housing professionals to transform lives. We will also be taking the opportunity to raise funds for the President's chosen charity, Women’s Aid.

The ticket price covers pre-dinner drinks, canapés, a superb four-course meal, wine, guest speaker and after-dinner drinks. Tickets can be bought individually or why not book a table of ten to reward staff or entertain your clients?

Guest speaker for the 2018 Presidential Dinner, Rafael Behr is a political columnist for the Guardian. He has been political editor of the New Statesman, chief leader writer on the Observer and a foreign correspondent for the Financial Times in Russia and eastern Europe.
