BMF secures three key sponsors for the All Industry Conference

Published:  10 December, 2012

The Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) has secured its first three key sponsors for the major events at the All Industry Conference 2013, being held in Portugal next year.

Builders Merchants News will be key sponsor of the Welcome Dinner, IKO will be key sponsor for the Gala Dinner, and Alumasc will be key sponsor for the Conference Golf Tournament.

All three companies join Fakro, who has already been announced as the first ever headline sponsor of the All Industry Conference, which means that some of the biggest brands in the industry will now be taking a lead role in the sponsorship of next year’s event.

BMF managing director, John Newcomb said: “We are delighted to have secured our first ever key sponsors at the All Industry Conference. Alumasc, IKO and Builders Merchants News are well known brands within our industry and it’s great to have them supporting this major event. It’s also the first time a trade magazine has ever sponsored the Conference as well. We have already announced our three speakers from within our industry and the rest of our business programme is almost complete. We will be making announcements soon on this”.

Said Andy Williamson, managing director of IKO: “ We are delighted to be supporting this important industry event as sponsor of the Gala Dinner. IKO has been a big supporter of the conference over the years. It’s a great networking forum bringing together so many people from within our industry from businesses of every size”.

Lisa Arcangeli, editor of Builders Merchants News commented: "We are very excited to be involved as a key sponsor in this most prestigious event. It’s the first time we have sponsored the conference and will be working with the BMF to ensure it’s the best conference ever.”

Paul Hetherington, managing director of Alumasc Rainwater, Drainage, Casings & Plastics division commented: “The All Industry Conference is the most important event in the calendar year bringing together senior people from across the UK for three days of quality business and dedicated networking. We have supported the event for a number of years and are pleased to be the key sponsor next year for the Golf tournament”.

Two key sponsorship packages are still available covering the main events, as well as platinum, gold and silver packages. Full details can be obtained from Christine Harding.

The All Industry Conference, which is supported by Unimer and NMBS, will be held at the Tivoli Marina Hotel, Vilamoura, Portugal from the 20-23 June 2013. An early bird delegate registration rate for both merchants and suppliers is available until 31 December 2012.
