NextGen Awards Dinner

How early can I book?
Bookings open to all on 20 July 2018.

Can I reserve a table and pay for it later?
No, table reservations are only confirmed after receipt of payment.

How can I ensure we get a good table position at the Awards?
The front tables are allocated to sponsors and the BCO. The rest of the seating is allocated randomly or you can choose your seats when booking. The venue is a fairly small space so even those on the back tables will not miss out.
