The UKWA Awards for Warehousing ceremony attracts over 450 UKWA members and their guests together with suppliers to the industry and is considered to be one of the most important networking occasions in the logistics industry’s year.

The host of this year’s presentation ceremony is Gyles Brandreth – the writer, broadcaster, former MP and Government Whip.

Gyles is one of Britain’s most sought-after award ceremony hosts and after-dinner speakers and this will be the second time he has hosted UKWA’s awards luncheon.

The event commences at 12 noon with a Gala Reception in the Dorchester’s Opal Suite followed by a 3-course luncheon and the awards presentation in the Ballroom at 1.00pm. The day’s events finish between 3.45 & 4.00 pm and the dress code is lounge suits.
