HRH The Princess Royal

The Institute of Export & International Trade is delighted to announce that HRH Princess Anne will be attending the Queen’s Award Winners Gala Dinner on September 27th.

The Princess Royal is known for her love of horses and an accomplished equestrian career that even saw her compete in the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. She has been the President of Save the Children since 1970 and has devoted a lot of her time towards supporting their work, as well as her numerous royal engagements across the UK and around the world.

 The Queen’s Award Winners Gala Dinner celebrates the achievements of winners in the International Trade category of the prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. The awards are probably the most prestigious awards that UK businesses can win and the winners are an inspiration to all.

In the International Trade category, awards go to businesses that have demonstrated a substantial and sustained increase in export earnings over three consecutive 12-month periods, to a level that is outstanding for the products and services concerned, and for the size of the organisation.

As well as the Princess Royal, we are delighted that Cathy Newman will be attending the event as the keynote speaker. Cathy is one of television’s most popular journalists. She was the first female to co-host the Channel 4 News show in 2011 and has regularly contributed to a number of the nation’s most high profile political magazines and papers.

The dinner is a fantastic chance to celebrate the UK’s achievements in international trade and meet the Queen’s Award winners, as well as several key industry figures. We are delighted that a very high number of winners have already signed up to attend, ranging from bespoke jewellery makers to innovative manufacturers.

This year’s dinner will be set in the majestic surroundings of the Royal Horseguards Hotel. From glittering chandeliers to contemporary design, this landmark Victorian building has a proud heritage.  

There’ll be a fabulous drinks reception in the Reading & Writing Room before dinner in the Gladstone Library. This incredible room is just as William Gladstone, four times British Prime Minister, would have known it – apart from the replicas of the 30,000 volumes lining the walls.

You can sign up now for a single ticket at a very reasonable price of £95, or for a table of 10 at £855 -
