The fork truck industry’s premier annual event is moving to the King Suite of the Hilton Metropole Hotel, Birmingham on Saturday 12th February 2011. Announcing the move, FLTA Chief Executive David Ellison said: “We are delighted to be back at the Metropole. With its central location, it offers easy access for guests from all over the UK and its proximity to Birmingham International Airport will allow easy access for our overseas visitors.
“More important still, the King Suite will provide us with the scope and scale required to stage the type of evening our industry deserves and will comfortably accommodate the increase in attendance that we anticipate as the economy continues to improve. Guests will be pleased to hear that we have negotiated good room rates in a drive to keep expenses at an acceptable level.
“We know that this will please our sponsors who have been unswerving in their support for the Awards: Albury Asset Rentals, Doosan Infracore, Exide Technologies Industrial Energy, Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks, Narrow Aisle and Samuk Lift Trucks; our entertainment sponsor Linde Material Handling; plus our supporters: Bibby Leasing, Curtis Instruments, Integrity Handling, Jungheinrich, The Oval Group and The Private Health Partnership.”
