ALLMI Membership Event - 40th Anniversary Celebrations!

ALLMI has recently announced full details of its 2018 Membership Event and 40th Anniversary celebrations!  Expected to be the biggest and most successful of its Membership Events to date, the industry-wide get-together will take place on 11th October at the award-winning Belfry Hotel & Resort in Sutton Coldfield.

As well as facilitating all members of the Association (manufacturers / importers, service companies, fleet owners, ancillary equipment suppliers and site operators) coming together to discuss and debate topical issues affecting the lorry loader industry, the Event will also see updates provided on ALLMI’s wide range of projects and activities, and will offer extensive networking opportunities via two social functions.

Commencing with a working lunch, proceedings will then move on to separate membership meetings for each of the divisions within the Association. Both meetings will be concluded with all delegates hearing from political commentator, Steve Richards.  Steve’s impressive career has seen him undertake leading roles in various forms of media, including Chief Political Reporter for The Independent, Political Editor for the New Statesman, host of GMTV’s Sunday Programme and BBC Two’s Despatch Box, and writer of numerous documentaries on Britain’s leading political figures. Steve currently presents Radio 4’s The Week in Westminster and continues to report for various national newspapers, as well as making regular TV appearances.  As a leading analyst on Brexit and with the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union only months away, Steve will share his views on its impact for the lorry loader and allied industries. Renowned for his informative, yet light-hearted and captivating manner, Steve is always happy to engage with his audience and so delegates should come equipped with questions and comments!

Steve’s speech will then be followed by an evening function packed full of light entertainment, starting with ‘mind reader’, Graham Jolley. Graham is one of the UK's most talented and versatile performers, entertaining audiences world-wide with his unique and humorous style, which has seen him appear on the BBC and ITV, as well as hired by a host of blue chip corporations.

During dinner, the entertainment will continue with table-side magic from ‘Chicks ‘N’ Tricks’. With their own distinctive brand of spectacular, close-up illusions, Chicks ‘N’ Tricks possess an impressive résumé, performing all over Europe and featuring on numerous programmes for the BBC and Sky.

The evening’s entertainment will be capped by a set from multi award-winning comedian, Rod Woodward. Rod’s incredibly unique delivery and material has attracted the praise of some of the comedy circuit's most respected names and critics, with Peter Kay describing him as a “young Dave Allen”. Having worked with the likes of Paddy McGuinness and Russell Brand, and having won the BBC’s ‘Funny Business’ accolade, as well as appearing at the Royal Variety Performance, Rod is widely regarded as one of the fastest rising and most sought-after comics in the UK.

ALLMI Chairman, Mark Rigby, comments “Whilst the scale of our Membership Event increases year on year, 2018’s is of particular significance as we will use the occasion to celebrate ALLMI’s 40th Anniversary, a milestone we are delighted to reach with our industry presence being stronger than ever. There’s no doubt the Event will be the largest gathering of lorry loader professionals in the 2018 calendar, and a great way to celebrate this fantastic landmark, as well as continued progress for many years to come!”
