The British Motor Museum met this brief with its unique and impressive rooftop ‘Sky Suite’. Delegates were able to enjoy a private reception and bar area as well as a roof terrace; offering panoramic views across the Warwickshire countryside. This exclusive and self contained space enabled Descartes Systems UK Ltd to create its own branded delegate space and bespoke stage set.
The event also provided delegates, from a supply chain and logistics background, complimentary access to the museum’s ‘The Car. The Future. Me’ exhibit. This tied in perfectly with the event’s theme for the day, “The Future of Supply Chain and Logistics” with key note speakers commenting on future challenges and opportunities in logistics.
Attendees also heard from key guest speakers on items such as the new HMRC Customs Declaration Service (CDS) and Brexit.
