Q: Do you offer guests of the Legal Business Awards preferential rates at the hotel for the night of the awards?
A: Legal Business has an agreement for preferential rates with the hotel. These apply for the night of the event only, not any prior or subsequent overnight stay. To secure these we advise you to contact the Grosvenor House Hotel no later than five days prior to the event and quote ref: EG4.
Q: How do I book a table at the 2017 Awards?
Q: What is the dress code for the evening?
A: Black tie
Q: Should I book a table even if I do not know all guest names yet?
A: Definitely: each year space at these awards goes extremely quickly and we cannot guarantee anyone space without a completed table booking form. Further we deliberately limit capacity to just over 1,000 guests, so it is vital you book your space and return the table booking form early to avoid disappointment. Actual guest names may be supplied at a later stage.
Q: When is the latest I can supply guest names?
A: We ask that wherever possible final guest names are supplied no later than 3 March 2017. As you will appreciate with over 1,000 guests we need a little time to print badges, and inform the hotel of any specific dietary requirements of any guest.
Also we are required to inform the hotel of all guest names for security reasons in advance of the night.
Q: What if I have a specific dietary requirement?
A: The table booking form asks you to highlight any specific dietary requirements alongside the guest name so that the hotel staff can locate the individual quickly and efficiently on the night. If you could complete any you are aware of at the time of supplying guest names.
The menu for the 2017 Awards will be made available mid-January 2016 and will be sent to all table hosts on confirmation of booking for circulation to their guests by our awards co-ordinator Flora Simpson.
Q: Is wine included with the table booking?
A: We provide our choice of red and white wine, as well as still and sparkling water, throughout the meal and awards ceremony. However, should you wish to order alternative wines or other beverages, you will be able to do so on the night.
Q: Do you provide invitations for Law Firms/Sponsors to send out to their guests?
A: We do not produce invitations for firms/sponsors to send out as we leave it to each table host's discretion as to who and how they wish to invite as their guests. All we ask is that you supply us with guest names as directed and for the reasons above before the event itself.
If however you want something that you can readily send out we would suggest the schedule at the top of this page can be easily pasted into email.
