Important Event Information

The National Procurement Awards 2021 ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 18th, as a Hybrid Event.

A hybrid event means that it will take two forms:

  1. A live in-person event which is where we will have a physical ceremony in the Clontarf Castle Hotel, Dublin.



  1.  A digital event which will be streamed live from the venue for those who prefer to watch the event remotely.

About Attending the Live Event

Guests who are attending the in-person live event will need to know the following:

*We ask all in-person attendees to arrive at 12pm sharp so that we can register your attendance. *

We would like all guests to be there a little earlier than usual as welcoming them may take a while longer because we will run the event under the Clontarf Castle’s, the venue, guidelines which in turn are in-step with the latest Government requirements.

Dress code for the live awards is Business Casual.

Guests who have any special dietary requirements will need to let us know as soon as possible so that we can facilitate their request.
