The company, which has more than 600 specialist advisers, is holding a black-tie gala dinner dance for 300 guests at the historic Banqueting House in Whitehall on 18 October.

The awards event follows on from Lighthouse Group’s national conference, sponsored by 32 financial services companies including Aviva and Scottish Widows, which is being held earlier the same day at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel for 300 professional financial advisers and Lighthouse staff.

Quintcomms has worked with Lighthouse since 1999 and organised its conference since 2004. Previous locations include Monte Carlo and Celtic Manor. 

In addition to listening to speakers Malcolm Streatfield, Lighthouse chief executive, and Louise Colley, distribution director for protection at Aviva, the conference delegates will attend breakout sessions on investment solutions and using technology to drive efficiency. A 'golden nuggets' session will see sponsors have two minutes to pitch a simple idea an adviser could implement, which would make a real difference to their business.

Delegates can also book to attend speed dating-style round table sessions with sponsors and visit the sponsor exhibition, where refreshments and lunch will be served.

Guests at the evening awards dinner will have drinks in the Banqueting House's vaulted undercroft before tucking into a four-course meal in the main hall. There will be entertainment from the electric string quartet Stellini, along with dancing and a DJ in the undercroft.
