IOE members and non-members alike shouldn’t miss this key event in the export calendar that offers a wealth of networking opportunities with thought leaders and businesses involved in international trade.

Our Members’ Dinner on November 16th will open doors to organisations from wide-ranging sectors along with top opinion formers and key influencers.

Director of International Market Advisor (IMA), Craig Smith, said: “Last year’s IOE Members’ Dinner gave us the chance to enjoy an evening of fabulous food, company and entertainment. We also got to meet prospective customers and generate new business contacts. We’re looking forward to this year’s dinner!”

Celebrating the Institute’s formative developments and achievements across this year, the special evening is hosted at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London.

Our keynote speaker is the Reverend Richard Coles – the former controversial former pop star who was the instrumentalist half of The Communards who hit the top spot with ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’ in 1986.

A classically trained pianist, Richard Coles is also an opera reviewer, the regular host of BBC 4’s Saturday Live programme – and can often be seen on celebrity panel shows such as Have I Got News For You. Many of you will have heard him on the radio will know how warm and funny he can be and Richard will share a wealth of fascinating insights into his colourful and varied career at our special event

IOE Director General, Lesley Batchelor OBE, said: “Our Members’ Dinner is an excellent way for like-minded people to forge new commercial relationships and reinforce existing ones, compare notes and enjoy our colourful and controversial keynote speaker in sumptuous surroundings.”
