A resounding success Annual Dinner 2018:


Deborah Grigg, Manager Secretariat, UKLA


More than 300 honoured guests, industry member companies and a host of International and European visitors descended on the prestigious Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Kensington last week, to celebrate the UKLA’s most eagerly awaited social event, the UKLA Annual Dinner 2018. And the event was a resounding success!


The gala dinner and reception was a sumptuous black tie affair; the ballroom sparkled, the guests were dressed to thrill and the champagne and wine flowed freely.


President David Hopkinson, Multisol, spoke freely and eloquently about the challenges faced by the UK Lubricants industry today including the need to be more sustainable in our practises and of course in a UK context, but one which will significantly affect the rest of Europe too, what will be the impact of Brexit on our future trading relationships with Europe and the rest of the world? He remarked that ‘At no time in the last 70 years have our future trading relations with the rest of Europe been more uncertain’. The President urged guests whether they are involved directly in the UK lubricants industry or whether they are guests and participants from elsewhere in Europe and beyond, to get involved with opinion leaders and policy makers in their countries, to make the case for our industry, as value creators who contribute substantial benefits to society and the environment.


He said ‘please don’t think your company or organisation is too small to be influential. The appeal

of a family-run or small or medium sized business is often more powerful than the larger beasts who are expected to look after themselves’!


Thanking those who give their time freely to the association he remarked that It is vital that the UK Lubricants industry is represented in discussions with policy makers in the UK, in Europe and globally, to make sure our view is heard, and as far as possible, to ensure there are practical and well-informed policies affecting our industry. Particular thanks went to our representatives on the UEIL Board and committees, Peter Vickers – Vickers Oils, Nigel Bottom- Witham Group and Caroline Slinn - Italmatch for all their hard work, time and dedication.


The President also thanked all the other directors of the UKLA for their time, in particular Paul Booth who has recently joined and taken on the mantle of Treasurer, and Martyn Mann the outgoing President, as well as Director General, David Wright and the UKLA secretariat team for all their help and support for the Board and the members.
