Welcome to the North Western Region

Bloodhound (side)

Dear Colleague,

I am delighted to give you advance notice that the Institution of Mechanical Engineers North West Region 2016 Annual Dinner will be taking place at the Hilton Hotel, Deansgate, Manchester, on Friday 22nd April 2016.

It also gives me great pleasure to confirm our guest speakers for the evening:

Daniel Jubb – Bloodhound SSC Rocket Engine Consultant

Richard Folkson - President of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers

In line with our tried and tested, highly successful format, the 2016 dinner will again be focused on inspiring the next generation of engineers to consider taking their school and further education studies toward a rewarding career in Science and Engineering. To that end the primary purpose for the evening will be to generate funds for the IMechE North West Region Educational Outreach Events, through ticket sales and company sponsorship from this Dinner.  Our aim for the event is to provide sufficient funding to support Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics educational events in schools, colleges and universities across the whole Region, which covers Cumbria, Lancashire and Greater Manchester, in conjunction with our friends at STEMNET, Primary Engineer, Bloodhound SSC and Tomorrow’s Engineer to name but a few.

The Dinner in the evening will consist of a fabulous four course dinner with wine/soft drinks in the stunning Deansgate Suite at the Manchester Hilton Hotel. The dinner will be interspaced between courses by our IMechE North West Region Engineering Achievement Awards:

The North West Region Winner of the IMechE University Design Challenge Competition

The “Andrew Medd Award” for the IMechE North West Region Young Engineer of the Year

The formal part of the Dinner will be concluded by our renowned after dinner speaking and then the post dinner entertainment will take over courtesy of the 'Sweet Rhythm Big Band', who will again dazzle us with their extensive repertoire featuring everything from classic big band sounds right on through to today's modern favourites.

We would really love for you to join us at this prestigious yet relaxing evening to celebrate all that is exceptional about Engineering in the North West with good food, excellent speakers and great after-dinner entertainment, while at the same time help us support STEM Educational Outreach Activities in the North West.

To find out more information on the event, our speakers and the Ticket/Sponsorship Package as well as other ticket options, which as you will see have been held at the same level as the 2015 prices, please follow the link to the Near You Event Page for the Dinner.
