UK: With bookings now open for this year’s IoR Scottish Branch annual dinner, nominations are also being sought for the branch’s annual awards.
This annual event, taking place at the Crowne Plaza, Glasgow on November 15, is the highlight of the IoR Scotland calendar and includes a drinks reception, speeches and awards. The event also raises funds for local charities. Tickets are priced at £80.00 inc VAT.
This year’s event will again be hosted by Scottish singer and television presenter Michelle McManus. The after-dinner speaker is former Scotland and British Lions rugby player John Beattie.
Nominations are also sought for the Scottish Branch’s Apprentice of the Year and Kooltech Award, which will be presented at the annual dinner.
The Apprentice of the Year Award is open to apprentices employed and working in Scotland. While candidates would normally be in the fourth year of their apprenticeship by the time of the award, this is not a condition for entry and consideration will be given to apprentices who are at a sufficiently advanced stage of a relevant refrigeration apprenticeship.
The winner will receive a cash payment of £500, a refrigeration text book and a year’s subscription to the IoR’s Service Engineers section.
The Kooltech Award recognises the individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the Scottish refrigeration industry. This may be in the field of academic study, research, manufacturing or contracting.
