4th October 2018 – AIEA Cluster Event (Midlands)

Location: Jurys Hinckley Island

The AIEA will be holding a Cluster event on Thursday 4th October from 6pm onwards at the Jurys Hinckley Island from and would be delighted if you could join us.  We will be hosted by the lovely Jamie Taylor from Jurys and he has offered, drinks, dinner and also accommodation, if required.  Knowing Jamie quite well I think accommodation is a must if he’s hosting drinks as well!  If you have not seen the hotel since the refurbishment then this would be an ideal time to have a site inspection and if you don’t know Jamie also a great opportunity to meet one of the industry’s gems!

We plan to have a brief discussion on what the AIEA has coming up over the next year, take on board any particular points raised and to generally enjoy a social get together.  Jamie has booked a meeting room from 4pm as we may possibly add on some training before dinner, Paula would be happy to run through the RAP/Crisis Comms if anyone missed it prior to the Carnival Day, therefore please let us know if this may be of interest?  We will also be giving a bit of an overview of the AIEA Group for any new members who may attend.

Please respond to jo@acebookings.co.uk by 24th September in order for us to confirm numbers with the hotel. Please also advise if you require accommodation and if you have any dietary requirements, however it is likely that we will be dining in Marco’s and will order from the menu.
