As a national-award-winning Chamber, the Annual Dinner is the pinnacle event in the East Midlands business calendar, with Chamber President Kevin Harris set to welcome around 600 guests to the stunning Colwick Hall in Nottingham on 21 March.

Following a welcome drinks reception, guests will be seated for a high quality four-course dinner. Throughout the evening, guests will be entertained by high profile speakers offering an insight into a cutting-edge business topic and the national political landscape. 

The event is a fantastic opportunity to carry out high-level networking with some of the region's leading business figures and is also an opportunity to entertain clients and cement working relationships.

Guest Speaker

Jason Bradbury - Futurologist

Jason Bradbury is best known for presenting The Gadget Show, both in the UK and US. Away from the studio he is also a lecturer on the University of Lincoln’s Computer Science and Product Design courses.

With enthusiasm and a constant flow of ideas, Jason takes a whirlwind tour of the history of technology, how we got to where we are, how the pace of change is increasing. 

He explores themes such as the exponential advance in digital technology and how computers will be so integral to the world around us they will cease to be seen as an object in themselves.

As well as being a student of all things tech, Jason also builds things, from hoverboards to robots to mind-reading devices and frequently illustrates his presentations with them, surprising and engaging audiences as well making them think. 

We will also be joined on the evening by another polictical speaker, the details of which will be confirmed nearer the time - so do keep visiting this page for updates.
