Together Towards Tomorrow: BMF Members Day 2016

Published:  08 December, 2015

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has announced the date, theme and venue for BMF Members Day 2016.

The event will be held on 20 and 21 September 2016, at Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire. Taking the theme Together Towards Tomorrow, the focus is firmly set on using the power of teamwork to create success.

The BMF is committed to revolving its annual Members Day event between venues in the north, Midlands and south to better serve members in all parts of the country. Hinckley Island Hotel is perfectly located in central England with excellent transport links, including three major motorway networks and two international airports, making it particularly easy for members to attend wherever they are based.

In addition to the BMF’s AGM, Members’ Day combines informal networking opportunities, a black-tie Awards Dinner, and informative business sessions with thought-provoking guest speakers.

For the third year running ACO will be the headline sponsor, Monument Tools will sponsor the BMF’s popular Golf Tournament for a fourth successive year, and Marsh Industries will continue its sponsorship of the Awards Dinner for a second year.

There will also be two new awards presented at the 2016 Awards Dinner, both sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants. The top performing BMF Postgraduate Diploma student will receive £1,000, while the top performing BMF Diploma in Merchanting student will receive £500.

John Newcomb, managing director of the BMF, said: “Members’ Day continues to grow in its scope, scale and attendance. Every year we look to develop on the success of the last and we are looking forward to welcoming even more members in 2016. I am delighted that ACO, Monument Tools and Marsh Industries see the value in their continued support. I would also like to thank the Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants for its generous support of two new awards that recognise the growing professionalism of our industry.”

Richard Hill, managing director of ACO, added: “We are pleased to continue our association with BMF Members Day for a third consecutive year. The BMF plays a vital role in the industry, particularly in bringing merchants and suppliers together at events like this. The theme of using the power of teamwork to create success should be of great interest to all and stimulate much debate during and after the day.”
