It's that time again and we have opened bookings for this year's event. Book early to avoid disappointment!
We are holding this year's event at the Marriott Forest of Arden Hotel & Country Club. This excellent hotel is set in the 10,000 acre Packington Estate in the heart of the Midlands, between Birmingham and Coventry, only four miles from Birmingham International Airport and mainline railway station. It has outstanding accommodation, superb leisure facilities and two challenging golf courses, which can be booked directly with the hotel. For the ladies (or gentlemen!) the hotel also features the Cedarwood Spa where you can book facials, body treatments or massages.
Full details have yet to be finalised but it is anticipated that one Workshop (subject to be confirmed) will be held in the afternoon from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. The Annual General Meeting will follow at 4.30pm. A drinks reception will take place at 6.30pm with the Awards Ceremony commencing at 7.00pm. This will be followed by the dinner, a speaker and a disco. Please note that wine will be served during the dinner and this is included in the ticket price.
The ticket price this year is £60 plus VAT (£69) and again we are offering a table of 8 for the price of 7. This offer, however, is only available for bookings made before 31 July 2009. Should you wish to stay at this superb venue, we have negotiated very competitive prices for their bed and breakfast package at £99.00 per person per night (single occupancy) and £109.00 per room per night for double occupancy. You will have to book your rooms direct with the hotel. There are two ways to do this:
