ALFED Annual Dinner and Members Briefing 2016


ALFED's prestigious Annual Dinner is to be held on Thursday 15 September 2016

We are delighted to be returning to the 4-star Tortworth Court Four Pillars Hotel in South Gloucestershire (M5 J14).

The ALFED Dinner is a black tie event, and provides a wonderful opportunity to entertain your guests,  be they colleagues and partners, customers or suppliers, in elegant surroundings. The 2015 Dinner attracted more than 200 people from across the industry.



Principal Guest Speaker - This year our Principal Guest and Speaker will be Richard Noble OBE – challenger, entrepreneur, World Speed Record breaker and motivational speaker.

Richard, driving Thrust 2, was holder of the land speed record between 1983 and 1997. He was the project director of Thrust SSC, the vehicle that holds the current land speed record, set at Black Rock Desert, Nevada in 1997.




His latest project, the Bloodhound SSC, is designed to be the fastest car on the planet and another world record attempt is planned to take place in 2017. Bloodhound SSC aims ultimately to pass the 1,000mph mark, beating the current land speed record set by Thrust SSC.
