Composites UK has opened up the registration process for its 2017 Industry Awards Dinner by offering early bird rates until 31st March.
The dinner takes place on 1st November at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham, coinciding with the Composites Engineering Show.
The 2016 event saw over 230 people celebrate the achievements of the UK composites industry at this black-tie dinner attended by large OEMs/Tier 1s such as Jaguar Land Rover, Mclaren and Rolls-Royce and SMEs such as Alan Harper Composites, Sigmatex and Pentaxia to name a few.
Claire Whysall, Communications Manager at Composites UK said; “It’s great to see the awards dinner attracting people from right across the composites supply chain, from small start-ups to the large OEMs, making it a clear celebration of the whole industry. The ongoing growth of the event can also be attributed to the alignment with the Composites Engineering Show, with many of the exhibitors and visitors attending the dinner to extend their networking opportunities into the evening or say thank you to employees and customers.”
Sponsorship opportunities at the event have also been launched with a range of options to suit all budgets. Ben Wilson, Director of MPM – the platinum sponsor in 2016 - said; “As a company focused on continuous improvement, it was an honour to support an awards dinner that recognises industry progress every year and looks to support improvements in the composites sector.”
David McCauley of Composites in Manufacturing Magazine (CiM) added; “By being a sponsor at the Composites UK Awards Dinner, CiM was able to support and contribute to an important evening for the industry, where hard-work and innovation are celebrated. It gave us the opportunity to show our commitment to the industry, whilst also offering a strong platform for brand exposure to reach over 230 guests on the evening.”
The sponsorship brochure and registration information is now live via the Composites UK website where there are options to book single seats or full tables of 10 at the early-bird rates until 31st March. An additional discount is applicable to members of Composites UK.
