Fire Cancels BETA Gala Dinner

A FIRE at the Metropole cancelled the BETA Gala Dinner and Awards Evening on the first evening of the BETA International Trade Fair.

Just as 350 party goers were set to dance the night away the fire on the third floor spread to other rooms in the hotel causing the cancellation.

The main damage was caused by smoke and water.

The first running of the BETA dinner looked set to be a huge success with key industry players looking forward to the occasion.

BETA Chief Executive and Secretary Claire Williams said: "We are all hugely disappointed. The dinner was a sell out and had the making of a great evening.

"We will hopefully run the dinner next year and will be able to cater for more guests."

It was planned to present the BETA sponsored Innovations Awards, the UK Trade and Investment Exporter of the Year Award, TSM Rider Award and BETA Lifetime Achievement Award during the evening.

These were presented on the Monday at BETA International.
