The Gala Dinner will, once again, take place at the Telford International Centre on Tuesday 18th September 2018. There will be a drinks reception in the Foyer, followed by a three course sit down dinner and coffee in the Ludlow Suite and the annual Bed Industry Awards.
The evening rounds off with a card/cash bar* plus music and dancing until midnight.
Dress Code: Lounge Suits
In short, it’s the bed industry event of the year and a great way to wind down and relax with colleagues and customers.
*Guests staying at the Holiday Inn, The International and the Ramada Hotel can also charge drinks to their room bill – just bring your key card and slip.
This year’s host
Our host this year is former rugby star and TV presenter, Martin Bayfield.
At an impressive 6’10”, former police officer, Martin Bayfield was one of the tallest men in rugby – a gift he used to full advantage as one of England’s most potent forwards winning 21 England caps and two Grand Slams. After retiring, his height helped him secure the part of Robbie Coltrane’s body double as the giant Hagrid in the Harry Potter films.
Martin’s brush with Hollywood was the start of a new career, with more acting roles and a move into TV presenting. He’s since become an established member of the BT Sport and ITV Sport commentary teams. He’s fronted coverage of the NFL and The World’s Strongest Man contest, and joined the presenting team on Crimewatch. He’s even tried his comedic skills at the Edinburgh Fringe.
The 2018 Gala Dinner and Bed Industry Awards for exhibitors and visitors to the show will take place on Tuesday 18th September in the Ludlow Suite.
It’s the event of the year – don’t miss it!
