This year the new President is Sean Moran, Group CEO of HPC (Home Project Centre) and Sean invites you to attend the Ball that he promises will be an excellent evening of fun, dancing and networking with industry colleagues.

The Ball will open at 7pm with a drinks reception, followed by a four-course dinner at 8pm. Note that The President’s Ball is a Black Tie gala event.

Also featuring at The President’s Ball will be the industry’s first Workwear Fashion Show. You can find more information about the show and who is taking part below.
