We are very pleased to welcome you to the BMF All Industry Conference 2021 website. This year, for the first time in its history, the conference will be held in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire – Harrogate and York. It is also the first time that the All Industry Conference has been held in the UK in nearly 30 years.
The conference takes place on 4th – 7th November 2021.
While we have a very full Conference business programme there will be ample time to explore some of the County’s delightful historic and breath-taking sights. The main Conference business will take place at the Yorkshire Event Centre with a spectacular gala dinner close by in the historic city of York.
Please take a look through the following pages for further information on this fantastic location and the hotels we have chosen for the Conference.
In the year that the UK begins a new relationship with the European Union, the Conference theme Building Beyond Boundaries could not be more topical, as the country looks beyond traditional geographical boundaries to build new trading relationships, and the industry moves beyond the boundaries imposed by the Covid health crisis and responds to Government incentives to Build, Build, Build.
Our industry thrives on networking and relationships and we know everyone was disappointed that this year’s event was, rightly cancelled. We will have to be out of social distancing measures for the 2021 Conference to go ahead, but that is not a reason not to work towards a fantastic event to signal our confidence in the market’s ongoing recovery.”
Conference delegates will have the choice of two four-star Harrogate hotels – the Majestic and the Crowne Plaza – which together can accommodate 350 guests. A key difference to the 2021 Conference programme is the addition of a Supplier Exhibition, replacing the Merchant/Supplier Exchange sessions. However, the three-day event will, of course, feature the popular Friday night dine-arounds and a full programme of social activities.
We look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
