Charity Christmas Kick-Off Party, Thursday 28th November 2019

Following the success of last year’s DATACENTRE.ME Charity "Christmas Kick-Off" Party, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting this year’s event on Thursday 28th November from 5pm 'til late in the City of London, EC3 (full venue details will be provided to all registrants once their attendance is confirmed).

This is not one of our usual end user networking events – it is an industry party, so a great opportunity for everyone to come together, regardless of who they work for within the world of data centres – note that, unlike our quarterly networking events, we do not limit competitive companies from sponsoring the same event plus vendors & manufacturers may readily register to attend.  You may invite colleagues, clients, prospects, partner organisations or even friends and family.  Everyone is welcome – as long as they have a paid-for ticket of course – we can accommodate 500-600 people on the night so let’s all do our very best to fill the venue up!
 
This is a really super opportunity to make life easy for yourselves and use this event as your office Christmas party and / or client entertainment whilst letting us take on all the hard work and organisation and give something back to our chosen *charities :-)
 
The price of all tickets includes a 10% donation to our *chosen charities, 3 drinks vouchers per person, buffet, branded photo booth & DJ (more details below). 
 
There are three ways to attend this particular event as follows:
 
1. Sponsorship prices start at just £500 + VAT and offer brand awareness and 5, 10 or 20, 30, 40 or 50 tickets - depending what level you sign up to (see further down this page for more information)
 
2. **Individual tickets can be purchased for £70 + associated bookings fees + VAT via our dedicated EventBrite page here.  The price of all tickets includes a 10% donation to our *chosen charities, ***3 drinks vouchers per person, networking opportunities, ****buffet, *****photo booth & DJ however there will be no assigned seating or branding on offer. 
 
3. If you qualify to attend our end user events as our guest (eg if you are an end user, “vendor neutral” installer, consultant, engineer etc) please let us know if you’re available to attend and we will see if any of our sponsors have a ticket that they are able to offer you (this is quite possible as we had quite a few spare tickets last year). 
 
*10% of all revenue will be donated equally, post-event, between our chosen charities:

IMPORTANT NOTES:

***Drinks tokens:  3 drinks tokes will be supplied to each person at the registration desk upon arrival on the evening.  These tokens can be exchanged for red or white wine, beer, cider & soft drinks at either of the bars.  Other drinks such as spirits will be available for purchase. 

****Buffet:  Please bear in mind that it is difficult to cater for 500(ish) people so please tell your guests not to expect a full-blown meal – it will be more of a “finger food” type of arrangement as at most parties of this nature.

*****Photo booth:  Many thanks to InfraNorth who are sponsoring the branded photo booth, so that everyone may enjoy it on the evening.  

There is no option for any of our sponsors to bring any branding / signage to this event and no registration lists / contact details are included in any of our sponsorship packages relating to this particular event.

There is seating available however there will be no officially assigned seating for our guests as this is a party with buffet food as opposed to a sit down dinner. 
 
Attire:  casual / business / party wear 

Being a charity event, we are hoping to gain as much support as possible however, please don’t leave it too long to sign up as we inevitably won’t have room for everyone.  As already mentioned, we had 30+ sponsors sign up last year in quite a short space of time.  With this in mind, if you are interested in getting involved, it would be wise to let us know asap please.

More information (including who attended, who sponsored, photos, video footage etc) regarding last year's Charity Christmas Kick-off Party can be found here.  Just look in the "PAST EVENTS" section.  The Charity Christmas Kick-off Party 2018 is located approximately 1/4 of the way down the page.  

We very much hope to gain your support and look forward to hearing back from you soon!  Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions or would like to confirm your attendance or sponsorship of the event :-)
