PLA Annual Dinner
The Procurement Lawyers Association Steering Committee is delighted to invite you to the PLA's second annual dinner on the evening of Thursday 17 November 2022 at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD. This is a fantastic venue which is capable of accommodating 220 guests. We hope that this will be a great opportunity for members with an interest in procurement law to come together on the eve of the White Paper Conference on Public Procurement.
Our guests of honour will be Lord Justice Coulson, Peter Bennett (formerly of the Cabinet Office) and (it is hoped) Professor Sue Arrowsmith. Our guest speaker will be Peter Smith, author of Bad Buying: How Organisations Waste Billions Through Failures, Frauds and F*ck-ups.
The timings for the evening are:
18:30: Arrival and drinks reception
19:30: Dinner served
21:15: After dinner speeches
The cost per ticket for private practice members is £95 and the cost per ticket for those attending from the public sector is £45. The ticket price includes one welcome drink and a three course meal with wine. There is a paying bar also available throughout the evening.
As with our previous annual dinner, there will be a seating plan and you are welcome to indicate your seating preference.
Please also specify any dietary requirements or food allergies when buying your ticket.
