The Evening Soiree provided an opportunity for delegates to continue the networking and exchange of ideas. We are very grateful to The Oyster Partnership and No.5 Chambers for generously sponsoring this event and providing an affordable and fun evening for young planning and property professionals.
The evening dinner was held at the Strand Palace Hotel in the West End, over 170 sponsors, speakers, Young Planners and members of other professional institutions attended this event. The evening kicked off with a drinks reception followed by a very humorous and honest address from Chris Young, a planning barrister from No.5 Chambers.
Post dinner, guests enjoyed an equally informative and entertaining speech by Kevin Murray of Kevin Murray Associates and a quiz where each table had to identify images grouped together in different categories such as breeds of dogs and architect responsible for designing different landmark buildings around the world. Congratulations to the winning team ‘NPPF-Off,’ who were treated to a couple of bottles of prosecco by The Oyster Partnership for their hard efforts.
The evening ended with a post-dinner disco and for some very enthusiastic networkers, a trip to the bars of the West End to continue the mingling and discussion of the thought provoking themes generated by the day’s exemplary plenary and breakout sessions!
