Special Thanks to our Event Sponsors: KOSO Kent Introl, James Walker, Clifford Springs and GMM Pfaudler.

This popular event is an excellent opportunity to keep up-to-date with industry relevant speakers, network with fellow BVAA members and enjoy an evening of food and entertainment in the beautiful surroundings of Mottram Hall, Cheshire.

Wednesday 22 May - Annual Spring Conference

The day starts with an exhibition, giving plenty of scope for networking. This is then followed by the Conference, with a program of topical, industry-related presentations by keynote speakers.

Delegates will then have an opportunity to relax, before meeting for pre-dinner drinks, and enjoying a delicious dinner. We’re delighted that this year’s evening entertainment will be in the form of Hal Cruttenden, one of the top stand-up comedians working in the UK today. We enjoyed his hilarious comedy at our Supplier Day in 2022, so we are thrilled he has agreed to return!
