Why Should I Book a Table?

By reserving a table at Cynopsis Sports Media Awards Breakfast, you will ensure that your team will be able to sit together as we celebrate the honorees with priority seating at the front of the room. Seating at the breakfast is first come, first serve only without table reservations, so by securing a table your team will bypass the line and snag one of the best seats in the house.
