About the dinner

The IET Annual Dinner has long been recognised as the leading engineering and technology networking event that offers like-minded engineers the opportunity to meet in a picturesque and relaxing setting for an evening of fine dining and enjoyable entertainment.

We returned to Londonís Grosvenor House on 22 February 2017 and enjoyed an exquisitely prepared four course dinner.

Guests began their evening with beautiful music on the Great Room balcony before being welcomed to dine by IET President, Jeremy Watson, and were joined later by guest speaker, Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy MBE.

This black tie occasion was certainly not to be missed and guarantees to be another evening to remember in February 2018.
