The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders is delighted to announce Lombard, one of the largest asset financiers in the UK, as sponsor of its Annual Dinner on 22 November at the London Hilton, Park Lane.
Lombard, which was voted best asset financier by Moneyfacts in 2009, 2010 and again in 2011, provides asset finance to companies of varying profitability and size, from SMEs to large corporates.
“Lombard is delighted to be supporting the SMMT Annual Dinner for the second consecutive year,” said Alexander Baldock, Managing Director, Lombard. “The transportation sector has a key role to play in the recovery of the UK economy and Lombard’s support of SMMT’s event reinforces our long association with the sector, and also our commitment to work with the industry to fund growth as the UK recovery becomes more firmly established.”
Nigel Stein, SMMT’s President will deliver the keynote industry address and the winners of SMMT’s Award for Automotive Innovation 2011 and the Autocar Courland Next Generation Award will also be announced on the evening.
Last year’s Dinner was attended by over 800 senior industry representatives and this year, SMMT hopes to build on that success. Earlybird tickets for this year’s event will be available until 27 May.
