BMF All Industry Conference - Budapest 2017 - Gala Dinner Sponsor

Crystal sponsored the Gala Dinner at the BMF Conference in Budapest in 2017 and helped to raise more than £62k for charity.  The evening saw a live auction taking place for a number of amazing prizes and a Fiat Abarth car donated by Martin Randall, Crystal’s Chairman, was auctioned by the man of many voices Jon Culshaw, a long-time supporter of Crystal’s nominated charity Variety.  The funds raised from the auction have been shared between Variety, the Children’s Charity and Teenage Cancer Trust, the BMF’s charity of the year.

John Newcomb, CEO at BMF commented
“We hoped to raise an exceptional sum for two very deserving charities and I am unbelievably proud of the industry for achieving even more than we ever imagined. I’m told that this is the highest sum our industry has raised for charity in a single night and I would like to thank everyone who contributed. I must also thank Martin Randall and the Crystal Clear Group whose donation of a limited edition car caught everyone’s imagination and made such a significant contribution to the evening’s overall fundraising.”

Martin Randall, Crystal Clear Group Chairman and Variety patron said: “I can only echo John’s appreciation of our colleagues in the industry. Their amazing generosity has raised a huge amount of money and these valuable funds will help both charities continue to make a difference to the lives of the people they support.”
In addition to the funds raised through the auction a further £8,235 was donated to Variety in the form of pledges made by the generous BMF members attending the Gala Dinner.

NMBS All Industry Conference - Lanzarote 2016 - Gala Dinner Sponsor 

The theme of the 2016 conference was ‘Business Matters’, and took place in Lanzarote in June with Crystal sponsoring the Gala Dinner for the first time.

 The calibre of speakers has been hugely impressive whilst the tailored business programmes have provided informative and essential content on the industry and the economy, providing delegates with salient ‘takeaway points’ to consider for their businesses long after the flights home.

With the emphasis being on a working conference, there was still plenty of time to network and socialise at specially arranged evening functions, including the Crystal sponsored Gala Dinner, where delegates got the opportunity to meet senior industry figures from both merchants and suppliers.
