We are pleased to announce Richard Carter, Managing Director UK & Ireland, BASF plc will be joining Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham as one of our main speakers at this year's Annual Business Dinner.

BASF plc have companies in more than 90 countries across more than 370 sites; including the world's largest chemical complex owned by a single company that was developed as an integrated network.

This year's Dinner will make it a hat-trick for the Mayor having spoken at every dinner since his election in 2017. Building on his previous themes, which have been amongst the many stand-out moments from these memorable evenings, and looking ahead to next year’s mayoral election, the Mayor will be focusing on the progress made in his time in office as well as looking at the importance of local power and decision making and what else needs doing to continue Greater Manchester's growth.

We shall shortly be announcing more guests and highlights for the evening and tickets are going fast, so make sure you don’t miss out and book your places today.

Sponsored by Manchester Airport Group, Westfield HealthSalford Business School, Esprit Warehousing LtdInspired EnergyVirgin Atlantic  and O2, this year's spectacular event will take place during our 225th anniversary - and what better way to celebrate than highlighting the fantastic work of you, our members, whilst also presenting the GM Contemporary Arts Prize 2019 during the evening.  There will also be a few surprises along the way!

Our Host for the evening will once again be Andrew Ryan who stole the show for us last year - and agreed to come back! Andrew is one of the most in-demand acts on the UK comedy circuit. The evening will close with a funk and soul DJ set at the after-dinner party with the fabulous Craig Charles.
