As the largest business representation organisation in the East Midlands, the Chamber is proud to support, engage and work with thousands of different businesses – and the communities they serve - across the East Midlands.

The Chamber has, during the past year, held the prestigious title of British Chambers of Commerce Chamber of the Year, and we want to start 2020 with another celebratory event – an inaugural dinner that is a celebration of our region’s diverse cultures and communities while also celebrating our ability to grow and prosper as one East Midlands community.

Our region has so much to offer and so much potential.

It is home to a diverse range of businesses – large and small. It is also a region that is fortunate to have rich diversity and a flourishing range of demographics, cultures, cuisines, music, sports, arts, and so much more.   

Overview of event

This event is an opportunity to celebrate the diverse and vibrant successes of the communities we live and work in - a great chance to network and get to know more about your neighbours.  It will bring people together to be entertained, informed and inspired through a blend of both traditional and modern cultures - with a mixed dress code of traditional cultural attire and formal balck tie, the evening is about celebrating the spirit of respect, harmony, collaboration and unity.

Evening Programme will include:

  • A welcome performance from a community choir

  • Guests speaker presentations from our three event sponsors:

    • Dr. Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive, Morningside Pharmaceuticals  

    • Chan Kataria OBE, Group Chief Executive, emh group 

    • Mark Esho MBA, Director, Easy Internet  

  • A three-course dinner uniquely prepared by Daniel Brazill, Head Chef at King Power Stadium, who has specially developed the menu for the night  

  • Entertainment throughout the evening, including elements reflecting the different cultural influences in the region

  • Live music at the end of the night

This evening is going to be unique and we look forward to seeing you there on the night. It is set to be a great event to bring friends, colleagues, new business contacts and old friends alike – one that has the potential to live long in the memory.
