A Tradition Since 1926

The first annual dinner of the DCAT organization was held in April of 1926 when members determined that an event, such as an annual dinner, would aid them in meeting and getting to know other members of their industry. Nearly a century later, the DCAT organization still hosts this very special black-tie dinner every March in New York City. 

Held on the Thursday evening of DCAT Week, the DCAT Annual Dinner features some of the most notable and interesting keynote speakers from a variety of areas including science, politics, entertainment and sports.
