This year sees the 30th Anniversary of the formation of the EIS. To celebrate this landmark we will be holding an event on Friday 6 November 2015 at Hogarths Hotel, Solihull. This will be a good opportunity to meet friends old and new as well as a chance to reflect on the work the society has carried out over the last three decades and to look forward to continuing success in years to come.
The event will start in the afternoon (2.30pm) when tea and cake will be served. At 4pm a summary of EIS activity over the past 30 years will be given followed by a presentation by Colin Dodds entitled “The Accidental Tourist”. Colin will take you on a journey from Glasgow in Scotland in the mid-1960s to the USA, Italy, Germany, France, India, Iran, China, Korea, Taiwan, Japan, and Mexico in 2014 and along the way will look at how automotive vehicle durability testing has changed over the last 50 years.
Pre-dinner drinks will be served at 7pm followed by a 3 course formal dinner. We are pleased to welcome Air Vice Marshal Alan Merriman as our after dinner speaker.
