The twelfth Midlands Engineering Dinner is taking place on Friday 11th March 2016 at our favourite venue, the ICC in Birmingham.
New for this year is a Young Engineer Networking Event, which we are running in parallel to the Drinks Reception. Targeted at all young engineers between 18 and 25, subsidised tickets are available. This event will be hosted by industry leaders from our sponsors and supported by Monty Halls, our after-dinner speaker.
This inaugural occasion is causing much excitement in the engineering graduate population, and we are sure their infectious enthusiasm will lift the evening event to higher heights! And if you are part of a larger company, why not organise a table just for your own graduates?
Since its inception in 2004, the function has been a joint event organised by local committee members from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). The two Institutions have a combined total membership of 200,000 worldwide and some 20,000 across the Midlands. Our Members work in all sectors of Science, Engineering and Technology.
The evening’s format is one of a business-style networking event, run by engineers for engineers and the business community. The overall aim of the dinner is to raise the profile of the engineering profession, and to ensure that the region is aware of the vital economic contribution made by the engineering community.
We are very happy to be supported by Jaguar Land Rover as the headline sponsor, along with Jonathan Lee, Intel, Penso, Panasonic, the MTC and Envisage co-sponsoring, so there will be plenty to see, touch, learn and experience during the evening’s schedule. As usual, the Birmingham Children’s Hospital will be there to help us support one of the best local charities in the area.
