Top industry names show their support for OFTEC’s new look awards event

A number of leading manufacturers and suppliers in the oil-firing industry have already confirmed their support for the new look OFTEC ‘Big Event 2014’ which for the first time combines OFTEC’s biannual Awards for Excellence presentations with a trade show and seminar programme.

Worcester Bosch Group, Grant UK, Kingspan Environmental, Riello Burners, A&D Publishing, Trade Direct Insurance and South West Peninsula Training have all signed up as sponsors for the event aimed exclusively at OFTEC’s 9,000 registered technicians - but there are still opportunities available to get involved.

Commenting on the ‘Big Event 2014’, Malcolm Farrow of OFTEC said: “This year we are doing things a little differently, combining the Awards for Excellence with a morning trade show and seminar programme, to provide the biggest event to date.

“We are delighted that some of the top industry names have already confirmed their involvement but there is still room for others, with opportunities to sponsor the event programme, seminars, lanyards and more still available.

“The Big Event 2014 offers the perfect forum to get in front of OFTEC registered technicians, suppliers and manufacturers and be part of a great day.”

The OFTEC Big Event 2014 takes place on Tuesday 24 June at the Nailcote Hall Hotel and Leisure Club near Coventry. To find out more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Malcolm Farrow at OFTEC on 01473 618577 or e-mail
