As a result of the current UK situation with the Covid-19 spread we have taken the decision to postpone the Spring Open Industry Forum. This years first Open Industry Forum was to be held immediately before the 37th Annual General Meeting and the venue was the SS Great Britain. Members who have booked for the event will be formally notified of the cancellation.
UPDATE: We will be looking to move these speakers to an event in the Autumn, if the situation has improved sufficiently by then.
The event will be held at the Viridor theatre and Speakers are just being confirmed but we have the excellent Simon Hart from RSM who has presented at two previous Open Forum meetings, including last years event at the LandRover Jaguar visitors centre and is a favourite with BASA members. We also have Martin Leeming from Trakrap UK who gave an interesting talk at November's OIF and is coming back to talk the benefits of automation. We also hope to have a BEIS speaker as well as some industry speakers on environmental issues and electric vehicles. It is a packed programme and members are encourage to attend and also to support the Association by attending the AGM and also buying a ticket for the Industry lunch which follows.
