SMMT Annual Dinner

Tuesday 23 November 2021

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ 104th Annual Dinner will be held on 23 November 2021 at Grosvenor House and is one of the most prestigious events in the automotive calendar, attended by guests from industry, government and the media.

SMMT President, Dr. George Gillespie OBE, Executive Chairman, HORIBA MIRA will give a keynote speech and the guest speaker will be announced in due course.

Given the circumstances of the past 18 months, we have made the decision to hold this year’s Dinner in the Ballroom at the Grosvenor House (instead of the Great Room that is usually used). As a result of the fact that the Ballroom has a reduced capacity, tickets will initially be available to SMMT members only (an SMMT membership number will need to be provided when booking).

Tickets can be purchased individually, as a ½ table or as a full table of 10. If you are interested in more than 10 tickets, please let us know and we will confirm in due course whether the capacity will allow for it.

Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis; we advise that you book early to avoid disappointment. Please note, bookings will be subject to SMMT approval before being confirmed and the deadline for member-only booking is Tuesday 31 August, although we cannot guarantee that tickets won’t have sold out in advance of then.

Please note, there are very few tickets available, please contact if you would like to purchase any tickets.

If you are a non-member interested in networking / partnership packages, please contact Seventy Events on behalf of SMMT on or phone 0845 450 4195.

We very much look forward to seeing you at the Annual Dinner on 23 November.

If you have any queries about any aspect of the event please don’t hesitate to contact us:
