Newport & District Materials Society Annual Dinner
NEWPORT AND DISTRICT MATERIALS SOCIETY
(Affiliated to the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining)
President: Mr. Mark Cichuta, Director at Cogent Power
On behalf of the President of the Newport & District Materials Society I would like to invite you and your company to our Annual Guest Dinner on Thursday 23rd January 2020. This year’s dinner is slightly different to previous years and will be a joint dinner with Cardiff University Materials Research Network forming part of their annual conference.
Once again, the venue is the beautiful St Pierre Hotel, Chepstow which is easily reached due to its excellent motorway access. The dinner provides first class networking opportunities for people in industry, especially those in materials and materials-related industries. This year Professor Dave Worsley, the Vice President (Innovation) at Swansea University will be the principal speaker. In 2015, Professor Dave Worsley was awarded the prestigious Hadfield Medal and Prize by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), in recognition of his distinguished work in the field of materials science and engineering and in particular, his achievements connected with the iron and steel industries.
The usual arrangement is for a company to sponsor one or more tables each seating 10 people. A four course meal is served and four bottles of quality wine are included in the table price of £550. Additional wines and spirits are supplied at extra cost and if wine is not required the table price is reduced. 'Half tables' can be arranged and individuals are also very welcome to attend. Some tables are organised to group smaller parties together.
As in previous years overnight accommodation can be pre-booked at the hotel. We do very much hope you can join us and would be grateful if you can confirm your requirements by returning the attached slip no later than Friday the 10th January 2019.
