We are delighted to present the second Gatwick Diamond Business Awards - Diamond Alumni VIP Lunch!


DIAMOND ALUMNI is a prestigious members club exclusive to Gatwick Diamond Business Awards’ winners, sponsors and partners. It brings together a selection of the very best of Gatwick Diamond businesses as recognised by the region’s premier business awards since their inception in 2009.


In partnership with Creative Pod, DIAMOND ALUMNI launched in 2021 with a lunch at The Grand, Brighton. At this year's VIP Lunch we will take the opportunity to further celebrate the success of this year's Awards Winners and acknowledge the support of Sponsors and Partners, at the Hilton London Gatwick Airport on Wednesday 5th October.


The lunch will also launch the upcoming Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2023 as we begin planning for our usual high-profile programme culminating with the Awards dinner and ceremony in March.


This Alumni lunch is an annual event offering high-level networking opportunities, and we plan to develop GDBA Alumni moving forward to provide other exclusive opportunities for Members.


We are very pleased with the support DIAMOND ALUMNI is receiving from sponsors and look forward to welcoming you as a Member of DIAMOND ALUMNI.

Venue: Ascot Suite, Hilton, London Gatwick Airport


In partnership with Creative Pod and our sponsors; Thakeham Group (Headline Sponsor), Richard Place Dobson (Speaker Sponsor), Avensys (AV Technology Sponsor), this VIP lunch will take place at the Hilton, London Gatwick Airport on Wednesday 5th October.
