Annual dinner

The BAPCO Annual Dinner will take place on the evening of Tuesday 20th March 2018, in the Premier Lounge at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. Renowned as THE night in the public safety communications calendar, the Annual Dinner will attract the UK’s most talented individuals, teams and companies. By attending the dinner, guests will have the opportunity to network with over 200 fellow public safety communications professionals and enjoy a stunning evening, including entertainment and music.

We are also proud to announce that current Wasps, England and British and Irish Lions Forward, James Haskell, will be our after-dinner speaker at this year’s BAPCO Annual Dinner.

What a night.

In 2017, we were proud to support the Royal British Legion and the outstanding work they do to support the Armed Forces community. Throughout the night, attendees got involved in tweeting #PoppySocialStory with Motorola Solutions kindly donating £1 for every time the hashtag was used. Overall, we raised an astonishing £4,200 thanks to the backing of all those within the public safety communications sector for the Royal British Legion. We thank you all for your generosity and continued support.

During the night, we presented the inaugural BAPCO Product Innovation Award – to the product voted most innovative by visitors who attended on the first day of the show. In 2017, the coveted prize was awarded to Capita – congratulations to them on their well-deserved honour.
