THE 2017 FeRFA ANNUAL EVENT


Belfry Hotel Exterior

JOIN US AT THE RESIN FLOORING INDUSTRY'S EVENT OF THE YEAR!

The AGM and Awards Dinner provide the ideal opportunity to meet with colleagues old and new and network during the AGM and dinner in convivial surroundings. You will find out what's happening in the industry and to hear about the latest benefits and services available to FeRFA members.

Following on from last year's successful event, the programme and format are:

FRIDAY 17th NOVEMBER 2017
at the Belfry Hotel, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield B76 9PR

The Belfry Hotel provides world-class luxury, surrounded by over 500 acres of countryside, yet close to all the major transport links. It offers excellent guest accommodation and event rooms, restaurants and bars, a nightclub, a luxury Spa and Health Club and of course iconic golf courses.

This year the industry event begins with the AGM and ends with great evening entertainment provided by comedienne and radio presenter Jo Caulfield, followed by music and dancing. Any partners not attending the lunch and AGM have the opportunity to visit Birmingham which has a flagship John Lewis and the famous jewellery quarter or enjoy the spa facilities and treatments on offer at the hotel. You can be back in good time to join us for the Black Tie Awards Dinner where you can dance the night away.

BLACK TIE AWARDS DINNER & ENTERTAINMENT

The FeRFA Awards Dinner will be a glittering event in the Woodlands Suite and an ideal opportunity to entertain customers, reward staff or enjoy a pre-Christmas get together with friends.

Our host for the Awards evening is comedienne and radio presenter Jo Caulfield. Jo has worked on some of the biggest shows, and with some of the biggest names, in British comedy. Not only has Jo been the regular warm-up performer for Have I Got News For You for many years, she has appeared as a guest on the show, as well as on Mock The Week and Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Jo has also appeared on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. On Radio 4, Jo has her own acclaimed shows, It's That Jo Caulfield Again and Jo Caulfield Won't Shut Up, as well as regularly appearing on shows including The News Quiz, The Now Show, and The Unbelievable Truth. She has written for Ruby Wax, Joan Rivers, Ant and Dec, and Graham Norton, who said of Jo, 'I never knew I could like a woman so much'.

Following the Awards presentations we will be honouring this year's Apprentice Graduates with the presentation of their NVQ certificates.

You can then dance the evening away or enjoy a drink in the Woodlands Bar.

The cost for the dinner is £75 + VAT with discounts available for tables of 10+. (Max 12 per table)
Dress code: Black Tie
