About for raf100 dinner

Small website banner


This event has been postponed

This decision has been taken jointly by techUK, RAF100 and our sponsors due to the fact that a large and growing number of stakeholders and members based outside central London are now unable to attend due to the severe weather warnings across parts of the UK and major transport link disruption and closures.

We have been in regular contact with stakeholders over the past two days with regard to the event. It has become clear that weather and transport disruptions have led to drops in significant volumes that would negatively impact the success of this important event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Further information will be provided to ticket holders on rescheduling in due course.

techUK is proud to announce it will be an industry partner for the RAF100 initiative in 2018. The RAF100 initiative will celebrate 100 years of the RAF with a range of events, challenges, competitions, and other engagements throughout 2018. For our industry this will begin with the techUK RAF100 Centenary Dinner on the 1 March 2018 at the Imperial War Museum with special guest speaker Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier, Chief of the Air Staff, RAF. ACM Sir Stephen will talk about the proud history of the RAF, the significance of the events in the year ahead, and how the RAF is looking towards the next hundred years. The event will provide an ideal opportunity for industry to meet key MOD and Government stakeholders in the UK Defence, technology, and aviation industries, and enjoy an evening of celebrating the accomplishments of the RAF.

techUK will continue support RAF100 throughout the year at a number of engagements across the UK bringing together MOD, industry and the public to highlight the vast potential of the UK’s aviation and technology industries. Many activities and events throughout the year will look forwards to the next 100 years of the RAF, discussing how air capability will develop in the coming decades and how digital technologies will support the evolution of the RAF. These engagements will include a static aircraft and STEM tour of the UK, including cities in each region, and an RAF100 engineering competition, both with a strong focus on bringing through young talent and skills across the UK which will be the foundation of the next 100 years of world leading UK air capability.
