The Annual Dinner & ASA Dutch Party and Business Briefing is a highlight in the ALFED calendar – and this year more than ever we will appreciate the opportunity to reconnect once again with industry colleagues and friends. The last dinner in 2019 was attended by about 200 aluminium industry professionals offering an excellent networking opportunity.
Guest speaker: Our after-dinner speaker this year will be Matt Dawson, MBE. Matt’s early career was spent as a successful international rugby player, playing for the Northampton Saints and London Wasps between 1991 and 2006. Matt toured three times with the British and Irish Lions as well as being part of England’s 2003 Rugby World Cup winning side. Since retiring from Rugby, he has forged a successful career in television and media which continues to play an important role in his life whilst also making a successful transition into the corporate world.
Venue: The dinner will be held at the at the superb De Vere Tortworth Court. Situated just north of Bristol and easily accessible from the motorway, Tortworth Court is a historic hotel in stunning surroundings – a place where a centuries-old story meets an exceptionally modern experience.
