Our Gala Dinner will be held in one of London’s most iconic buildings, County Hall by Westminster Bridge.

Last year, you might remember drinks and dinner were a nautical treat, taking place on the Cutty Sark. In 2018, we’ve decided to lift you up a level to the fourth floor of County Hall, with views out to the London Eye and across to the City of Westminster.

Following Thursday’s last session, we will invite you to enjoy aperitifs with us while the Waterloo Suite – also our location for the conference – is readied for a banquet.

County Hall was opened in 1922 by King George V, and has recently been restored in places to its original splendour. For one night only, you can enjoy a four-course meal in this Edwardian Baroque masterpiece, as London’s night slowly comes into focus outside, decorating the Thames with reflected lights.

As the evening develops, enjoy relaxed conversations, consolidate old relationships and develop new ones, and expand your network of colleagues and clients. Meet international and UK-based trade mark attorneys, IP barristers, judges, investigators, searchers, exhibitors, and support services.

Our Gala Dinner is our most prestigious annual event for both those attending the Spring Conference, and those who enjoy wining and dining with their CITMA colleagues. This year promises to be more special than ever, as we welcome delegates from a wider international backdrop than any other year.

Please clear your diary and join us for an evening to remember.

This amazing evening is included when joining us as a full conference delegate.
