    The new date for techUK’s Annual Dinner will be 19 July, following the announcement of the General Election on 08 June and due to Purdah restrictions.

The new date for techUK’s Annual Dinner will be 19 July at the same time and venue.

Following the announcement of the General Election due to take place on 08 June, and further to Purdah restrictions making it difficult for many of our public sector stakeholders to attend techUK’s Annual Dinner, we have made the decision to postpone the event until after the General Election. 

We have taken appropriate time to speak with our public sector partners, tech industry stakeholders and sponsors before coming to this decision. We feel that a postponement is the best possible option for all our guests, ensuring that enough notice is given of the new date ahead of welcoming the tech industry and our stakeholders on 19 July.

We understand that you may have made arrangements for the 24 May and we apologize any inconvenience caused by the change of date. Although we are disappointed to have to postpone with 500 acceptances already received, we believe that the new date offers us the opportunity to ensure our flagship annual event is a huge success.

We shall transfer all bookings over to this new date automatically, however if you can no longer make this date and wish to transfer your ticket to a colleague please let us know. If you cannot attend this event please let our team know and we will issue a refund.

 

Please update your diary with new details of this event:

Wednesday 19 July

18:45 - midnight

The Brewery Chiswell Street, London
