CIWM Gala Dinner 2021

We’re delighted to announce the long-awaited return of the CIWM Gala Dinner, taking place at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on Wednesday 22 September 2021.

It’s been almost two years since our last Gala Dinner and, in that time, we’ve endured what was once an unimaginable crisis. But during a period of incredible loss – the loss of freedoms and normal ways of life; the loss of livelihoods and employment; and, for many, the loss of loved ones – there was also much to be thankful for.

And so, this year’s Gala Dinner is dedicated to just that. It’s an opportunity to show your appreciation for colleagues and peers who have worked tirelessly to maintain vital services against the odds. It’s a chance to express your gratitude for customers and clients who patiently stood by as you weathered the storm. And, above all, it’s an opportunity for us all to thank each other for never giving up.

Together with friends, colleagues, customers and clients, we’ll celebrate the incredible strength and resilience of our sector and the unwavering commitment of those within it. We’ll catch up with old friends and make new connections. And we’ll toast to a bright new future ahead.

The time has come for us to meet again, and we hope you’ll join us for an evening of thanks and celebration as we raise a glass to the drive, determination, innovation, positivity and persistence that have carried us through.
