Now in its 13th Year the BTS lectures and Dinner is still going strong, from its humble beginnings at the Hilton were just 24 of us that sat for dinner and listened to lectures, with amazing technologies such as over head projectors and acetate sheets to trusty old 35mm slides
even with a few fork (Andrew Smith) and fire (Martin Nicholas) problems.The lectures have grown and expanded to a bigger, better venue with the Aztec Hotel and Spa.

Lectures are now amazing PowerPoint presentations filled with technical information and photos and video. Guest lecturers from Europe and USA had donned the stand and presented some amazing talks.

When Mark and myself first envisaged this kind of event we did not know whether it would work or even stand the test of time.

However our fears were unfounded and the BTS’s membership and friends have supported this unique, educational and above all social event.

We are both looking forward to seeing everyone this year.
