We are delighted to announce the upcoming Aluminium Federation (ALFED) Business Briefing and Annual Dinner. Taking place on Thursday 30th November, this year’s event is once again being held at the prestigious Tortworth Court Hotel, South Gloucestershire. Another fantastic networking opportunity, the annual event is filled with valuable insights and followed by an elegant black-tie dinner -all set in the picturesque Gloucestershire countryside.
Last year’s dinner was a resounding success, with tickets selling out quickly and more than 250 aluminium industry professionals in attendance. The event proved to be an excellent platform for fostering new connections, and strengthening existing ones. This year, we are anticipating another stellar turnout, with representatives from various sectors of the aluminium industry coming together.
The day will begin with an ALFED Business Briefing and feature a full programme of industry speakers. Experts will share their knowledge and insight on a range of topics crucial to the aluminium industry’s current and future success. Attendees will be updated on the latest transformational trends, innovative practices, strategic approaches, and sustainable solutions.
Our speakers include:
Head of Embodied Emissions Reporting – Industrial Decarbonisation at Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
Malindi Myers – Bank of England
As the representative from the Bank of England, Malindi Myers will shed light on the economic outlook and factors influencing the aluminium industry.
Paul Williams – CRU
Paul Williams, from CRU, will present on market analysis, dynamics and future trends in the aluminium industry.

Special Guest Speaker
We are also thrilled to announce that this year’s event will feature a special after dinner guest speaker: renowned former politician and Strictly star, Ed Balls. With a wealth of experience and insights into current affairs, politics, and industry trends, Ed Balls will undoubtedly add a whole new dimension of knowledge and perspective to this year’s ALFED event.
Ed was formerly the UK Economic Secretary and Minister for Financial Services from 2006-2007, and the Chief Economic Adviser to the UK Treasury from 1997-2004, during which time he was the Chair of the International Monetary Fund Deputies and UK G20 Deputy.
Away from Westminster, Ed is still an economist and British Labour Party politician. He is the Senior Fellow at Harvard University Kennedy School’s Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government and Visiting Professor to the Policy Institute at King’s College London. He also actively blogs and writes speeches on the issues affecting the current economic climate.
After a day filled with valuable information, enlightening discussions and thought-provoking speeches, attendees can then look forward to an exquisite black-tie evening dinner.
We look forward to welcoming you to the event to celebrate the industry, foster innovation and discuss how collaboratively we can drive the sector in the ever-evolving landscape of aluminium production and processing.
