The London Market Dinner 2021


The London Market Dinner 'Protect Our Planet', an insurance sector event, will take place on Thursday 30 September 2021 at Guildhall. 

The London Market Dinner is the largest insurance sector dinner of its kind held in London. The first London Market Dinner, held in April 2018, sold out in a record time and was the biggest event to date for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal. Over 530 people attended from across the insurance sector, with business competitors sitting side by side, to raise an incredible amount of money for charity.  

In 2021 the event will focus on climate, biodiversity and sustainability, all issues of huge relevance to the insurance industry. The evening will involve a Champagne reception in the Old Library, a top class 3-course dinner in the grand surroundings of the Great Hall, thought-provoking speakers, a silent auction and exciting entertainment as well as a chance to bid for a small number of money-can’t-buy prizes in the live auction.

Tables of 10 cost £7,500. To book please complete and submit the online registration form here. The dress code for the event is black tie and the evening will begin at 6.30pm.
