UK Pensions Awards 2020 Statement

Despite our best efforts to deliver the UK Pensions Awards we have taken the decision to postpone the awards dinner until 7 October. The awards will now be held at The Brewery on London's Chiswell Street.

The current global situation unfolding around COVID-19 presents too much risk and our first priority is to protect the health and well-being of our guests, sponsors and staff along with the quality of the event and we hope that you will support us in this decision and continue to join us on the new date.

If you have already booked a table, we will automatically transfer your booking to 7 October and we will communicate further updates in due course. If you would like to join us on the evening, please contact Yusef Albahra via [email protected] or on 020 7484 9836.

Further information about the awards can be found at: ukpensionsawards.com.
