Full House for BMF Members’ Day

Published:  07 July, 2016

Tickets for BMF Members' Day have sold out two months in advance of the event, which takes place on 20 and 21 September.

The announcement comes as the BMF confirmed details for an information-packed Digital Marketing segment, which will feature three speakers to make sure every angle is covered. The speakers are:

  • Nick Pauley, managing director of Pauley Creative, a digital marketing agency for the construction industry
  • Jamie Pierce, marketing, communications and digital media nanager for Parker Building Supplies, one of the largest independent builders' merchants in the South East
  • Lizzie Seaton, marketing communications manager at Celotex, will be giving the supplier's viewpoint.

All three speakers will also take part in a digital marketing workshop later in the day. They will be joined by international digital marketing expert Lynsey Sweales, of SocialB, which helps businesses to utilise digital marketing to generate business online.

BMF managing director John Newcomb said: "Members Day is always a popular event, but this year the audience will be bigger than ever, with the Awards Dinner, the Business Conference and the Exhibitor slots all sold out. And as the effects of Brexit become clearer in the coming weeks, our theme, Together Towards Tomorrow, becomes even more topical. It promises to be a valuable and educational event for all."

BMF Members' Day will take place on 20 and 21 September, 2016, at the Jurys Inn Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicestershire. The headline sponsor is ACO.

In addition to the business conference, the two-day event encompasses a black-tie Awards Dinner, sponsored by Marsh Industries, and informal networking opportunities including the BMF's popular Golf Tournament sponsored by Monument Tools, to be held at the nearby Nuneaton Golf Club.

The Awards Dinner will feature a new category, the BMF Supplier Engagement Award. Sponsored by MRA Marketing, this award will be presented to the supplier member who has most consistently or innovatively engaged with BMF members. There is also a new sponsor, Siniat, for the Apprentice of the Year NVQ Level 2 Award.
