RHA Annual Conference and Dinner

Thursday 03 June 2021

As you know, because of Government guidance regarding COVID-19, we, like so many other businesses, had to cancel this year’s event which was due to take place on 4th June at Birmingham’s premier venue, the Vox.

We are continuing to build on the plans already in place for this new event which we are confident will ensure that you and your business are fit and ready to cope with what will probably be the new ‘normal’.

Your attendance will guarantee that you’re equipped with the valuable knowledge on many hot topics that may affect our industry in the future. Conference delegates  - members and non-members – will hear from leading industry experts from the retail and business sectors - their success being dependent on the world class service that our members provide.

They will bring their knowledge and expertise to the event, setting out their vision of what the future holds for logistics, commercial vehicles, and supply chains and I’m also able to confirm that BBC and ITV presenter Gabby Logan will be our conference host.

The daytime agenda will focus on the following areas: the future of our industry, innovation, the environment and sustainability, skills, and people. Bearing in mind the challenges we have all had to face and will continue to face for many months, possibly years to come, it is an agenda that focusses on the road to a prosperous future.

We will be delaying the announcement of our confirmed speakers and the running order until mid-September. This will provide us the opportunity to address the relevant subjects that become apparent as we move from lockdown and back towards a position of business growth.

We will, of course, announce details through our social media channels as they become available.

The evening’s event, the RHA Annual Dinner, will be hosted by comedian, novelist, and TV presenter David Baddiel. This will provide a perfect networking opportunity and you’ll be able to enjoy an evening with friends and colleagues.

We will also be announcing the winners of the RHA awards – a great opportunity for us to acknowledge the important and unique contribution that our members make to this vital industry.

I sincerely hope that I can count on your support for what I know is going to be a thought-provoking and exciting event.
