The YMC Winter Ball was the biggest it's ever been in 2023; bringing together 1,000 insurance professionals for a night of celebration and networking!

Hosted at City Central at the HAC, guests enjoyed a three-course dinner and entertainment from a live band, dance act, magicians, jugglers, DJs and a casino. Throughout the evening, guests also enjoyed walking the red carpet, dodgem rides and a 360-degree photobooth!

This incredible evening was made possible thanks to generous sponsorship from Specialist Risk Group, Marsh, Howden, Convex, WTW, Harrison Holgate, Munich Re, Aspen, Empower Development and IPS Group.

The YMC Winter Ball was proud to support the vital work of Mind in the City, Hackney & Waltham Forest – a huge thank you to all sponsors and attendees for their generous support. We hope to reveal the total raised soon, so watch this space!
