Annual Dinner 2013

Limited seats remaining at the 12th Annual Dinner!

There are less than two months to go until the RREF Annual Dinner and it is looking set to be the highest attended event in RREF history. With over 500 places already reserved, space is limited, so make sure you let us know soon if you will be joining us, but have not booked your table yet. 

The event is well known throughout the AD12groupindustry as a fantastic opportunity to catch up with friends, network among peers and host clients, while supporting the excellent work that RREF does not only for the current real estate profession, but for the future of the profession as well. In the last three years the dinner has raised over £105,000 from sponsorship and advert sales, along with the raffle and the exciting auction that takes place on the evening with prizes generously donated by alumni and organisations alike.

We have a wide variety of guests due to join us this year, from those who graduated almost 40 years ago through to those who left the University most recently and are joining us for the first time. Find out why our alumni return each year and what they get out of it:

"Not only is it a great chance to catch up with increasingly old friends but it is also a great way to maintain a connection with the University. Guests are given an insight into some of the work the University is doing to support students from less privileged backgrounds and to provide work experience to current students."

Gary Hale, 1981 BSc Land Management - attending the dinner for his 10th year.

"This is the one event that I have been to through my surveyor networks that enables all surveyors undertaking a variety of roles, with a breadth of experience and differing lengths of time spent in the industry to get together and have a chat in an environment that encourages that junior to senior/senior to junior discourse based on everyone's common link to RREF."

Holly Franklin , 2006 MSc Real Estate - attending the dinner for her sixth year.

"The Annual Dinner truly shows how big and well-connected the Reading alumni network is. I remember seeing many colleagues from CBRE at the dinner, many of whom I didn't even know had attended Reading. It also provides a great setting to catch up with your RREF mentor and meet new people from the industry."

Andrew Brenninkmeijer, 2012 MSc Real AD12room2Estate - attending the dinner for his second year.

It is not just alumni who join us for the Annual Dinner. We also welcome companies who use the evening as an opportunity to entertain their clients and take advantage of having alumni from a University with such a fantastic reputation within the industry in one room:

"As well as enjoying an entertaining evening, we value the opportunity to meet up with clients and contacts, share industry knowledge and host our guests in a convivial atmosphere. Also, knowing that our participation in the dinner supports the valuable and excellent work of RREF is very gratifying."

David Sinclair, Head of UK Real Estate at Norton Rose Fulbright LLP - are attending for their fourth consecutive year.

We are also looking forward to welcoming our sponsors and their guests. Without the generosity Europa Capital, JLT Group, MJ Mapp and Oxford Properties the Annual Dinner would not be as successful an event as we are gearing up for.
