On 14 November over 1400 guests arrived at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London for the ACT Annual Dinner 2012. Guests enjoyed an evening of fine dining, whilst catching up with colleagues and friends from the treasury and finance community.
Supported by Barclays, the dinner is the biggest event of its kind in London. The ACT, having been granted Royal Charter, were proud to make the occasion even more momentous and celebrate this achievement by displaying the Royal Seal at the entrance to the Great Hall.
