Reason Global attend B.A.R Conference 2015 Belfast

Reason Global were delighted to attend the British Association of Removers’ annual conference in Belfast over the 21st-24th May 2015.

The conference was held at the famous Europa Hotel in the centre of what is a modern and vibrant city.    Members from all over the UK attended and enjoyed 3 days of stimulating business sessions and social events.   After an initial day of general business sessions there was a dinner hosted at Belfast City Hall, generously supported by the local Northern Ireland area members, which included some fantastic and at times moving entertainment and a charity auction.   The proceeds of the auction were split between the Association charity, the Removers Benevolent Association and the local Belvoir Players, who helped organise the evening.  Campbell McGimpsey of McGimpsey Worldwide Removals addressed the members to welcome them to Belfast.

This was followed by a second day where the Overseas, Commercial and National Groups delivered business sessions for their affiliates, with subjects ranging from claims handling tips for members, manual handling on commercial moves, through to Container Weighing, an initiative that will affect all international movers from 1st July 2016.

The second day of business ended with the gala dinner, held at the fabulous Titanic Centre, with members enjoying a tour of the Titanic exhibition, followed by a drinks reception and dinner and more wonderful entertainment for the assembled audience.   The winners of the various competitions were announced as follows:

  • Domestic Mover of the Year – Richard Healey Removals Ltd
  • Commercial Mover of the Year – Universal Commercial Relocation Ltd
  • Overseas Mover of the Year – Bournes Removals Ltd

Our congratulations go to them all and also to the British Association of Removers for organising an informative and enjoyable conference in a great city.
