The Builders Merchants Federation’s next BMF Members’ Day will take place on the 20th September 2017.
The event has a new headline sponsor, Encon Insulation, the independent UK distributor of insulation and drylining products, roofing materials, interior systems and passive fire protection. It also has a sllightly different format this year.
BMF Members’ Day combines the Federation’s AGM with a day-long Business Conference and a black-tie Awards Dinner to celebrate the achievements of young people working in the industry. In previous years, these two elements took place on consecutive days. In 2017 both take place on 20th September, with the Awards Dinner following the Business Conference. Marsh Industries will sponsor the Awards Dinner for a third successive year.
The BMF’s annual Golf Tournament will be on 19th September, the day before the main business event and black-tie dinner.
Members’ Day 2017 will be held at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire. However, the BMF is committed to revolving Member’s Day between venues in the north, midlands and south to better serve members around the country, so 2018 will see Members’ Day move to a new location.
BMF managng director, John Newcomb said: “The number of merchants and suppliers in attendance has grown in each of the last five years. We are always looking at ways to make their experience even better, and believe that holding the conference sessions and awards dinner on the same day will do just that.”
Mike Beard, merchant development director, Encon Insulation, said: “Like the BMF, Encon works to support both suppliers and merchants and we welcome the opportunity to be associated with BMF Members’ Day. It gives a cross section of the industry a chance to share opinion, ideas and best practice and a great opportunity to network with new and existing contacts.”
