Annual Lunch 2020

Understandably, it was not possible to hold the CECA (Southern) Annual Lunch as planned on Friday 3 July 2020 at The Brewery, London as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, it is planned that this flagship event that brings together over 400 people in celebration of our industry to network and engage with key sector clients will be part of the CECA Southern calendar for 2021. The event is one not to be missed from both a personal and business perspective and will be held on Friday 2nd July 2021.

There will be a Question Time style key client engagement event held in the morning followed by lunch where attendees will be entertained by our guest speaker and will also have the opportunity to catch up with industry colleagues either before or after the Lunch. In addition, there will be the presentation of the CECA (Southern) Training Awards, celebrating the remarkable achievements of the young women and men who are our rising stars.

You can again book tables of 10 to 12 and there is also the option to book individual tickets. There will also be a discounted rate for those companies booking more than one table. The booking forms will be made available nearer to the time.

To all looking to develop prosperous new relationships, or build on existing ones, share experience, entertain clients, or just have a great time, we sincerely hope that you join us in July 2021.

Annual Lunch 2019

We were delighted to welcome members and guests to the CECA Southern Annual Lunch on Friday 5 July 2019 at The Brewery.  In 2019, the Annual Lunch was refreshed with a new summertime date and new venue.  The event included our keynote speaker, Wayne Barnes, who is widely recognised as one of the world’s best rugby referees, as well as the presentation of the CECA (Southern) Training Awards, celebrating the remarkable achievements of the young women and men who are our rising stars.

“Many thanks for inviting me to join you for the delicious lunch and brilliant occasion on Friday. It was inspiring, as ever, to see such talented representatives of the industry at the threshold of their careers in construction (or apex in the case of the lifetime achiever) being given their awards, and the speeches, entertainment were all excellent, as was company on my table and more widely. I thought the new venue and timing of the event worked very well (as did everyone I spoke to).”

“I wish to congratulate you all on delivering a great annual lunch on Friday. I thoroughly enjoyed the new venue (thanks for organising perfect weather too!). The food was first class as was the whole organisation of the event. Once again, congratulations and thanks for inviting me to your very enjoyable annual lunch.”
