Hosted by Lisa Snowdon, of Strictly Come Dancing and BBC's Royal Ascot fame, the AM Awards 2019 promises to entertain while celebrating success.

Guests will be served an indulgent three-course meal and, once the trophies have been awarded, offerered networking opportunities in Birmingham's glitzy ICC.

The ceremony will conclude with a performance from stand-up comedian Hal Cruttenden who has previously appeared on Have I Got News for You and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. 

Once the bar has opened, guests can catch up with old friends or retreat to the quieter "chill-out lounge" to network with clients. 

This year, Aston Barclay will be treating attendees to some immersive fun in the VR Entertainment Zone and the Anki Overdrive racing system. 

With a variety of table and ticket packages to suit all budgets, the AM Awards 2019 is set to once again be the most anticipated industry event of the year. We hope to see you there.
