The AREF Annual Dinner & Awards was launched in the late 1990s, to raise the profile of the Association and to create an opportunity for fund managers and their specialist advisors to network.  It has become a highlight in the real estate social calendar.

The dinner has hosted a vast array of speakers and entertainers, including:  Nina Conti, Lucy Porter, Lord Sebastian Coe, Rory Bremner, Ian Hislop, Miles Jupp and mind-reader Graham Jolly.
