Our ever popular 2016 Annual Dinner took place last Thursday evening, 4th February in the DoubleTree by Hilton Dublin. The event has long been regarded as an occasion that offers members an excellent opportunity to meet and network with fellow colleagues. This year was no exception with more than 1300 members in attendance.
Shortly before dinner was served, SCSI President Andrew Nugent took to the stage to welcome members and guests. Andrew noted the many initiatives that were undertaken by the Society and highlighted the positive economic outlook and the many opportunities arising for the property, land and construction sectors.
Guest speaker Welsh referee Nigel Owens entertained the audience with stories from his career as a renowned international Rugby referee, and shared with us the most challenging players he encountered in the game. He surprised guests with his rendition of a Welsh song, and as he concluded, received a standing ovation for his humorous, entertaining and memorable speech.
We would like to extend our warmest thanks to all guests who attended our Annual Dinner this year, and look forward to seeing you again next year.
Our thanks to our main sponsor, Bank of Ireland and support sponsors, Irish Independent Newspapers and Eugene F Collins Solicitors for their support of this successful event.
