The SMMT 99th Annual Dinner

One of the key events in the automotive calendar is the SMMT Annual Dinner which is attended by leading executives from across the industry in addition to UK & international media.

This year’s event marked the 99th Annual Dinner held on Tuesday 24th November at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, W1.

Vocis were again fortunate enough to host a table at this year’s event, which proved to be a most enjoyable evening. The event featured an address from SMMT’s President, Gareth Jones, on the state of the automotive industry plus a guest appearance by Jeremy Vine.

Congratulations to Transport Systems Catapult winners of the 2015 SMMT Automotive Award for Innovations for the LUTZ Pathfinder. A self-driving pod project which is about to get underway on pedestrianized areas of Milton Keynes.
