2018 BASA Annual Industry Lunch

Tuesday 20 March 2018

Twickenham Stadium, London


The venue for the eagerly awaited 2018 BASA Annual lunch is the magnificent Twickenham Stadium Members Lounge. Our Annual Lunch will take place shortly after the 35th BASA AGM on 20th March 2018 and sees industry convene to discuss the most topical issues, as well as the opportunity to hear a number of keynote speakers to talk about the impacts of Brexit on our industry.


It will be a fantastic opportunity to network with guests across the industry to discuss what has been an eventful year in our industry, and the inevitable challenges that will follow the decision to leave the EU.



Reward your team or invite prospects


The BASA Industry lunch provides the ideal opportunity to reward staff for their efforts over the past year, mingle with industry colleagues, entertain prospective customers and catch up with the BASA Secretariat team and BASA Council members.


To guarantee your place at what promises to be a popular event please complete the registration form. We wouldn’t want you to miss the chance to be at this key industry event and the opportunity to talk to the people who are important to your business!


This year we are delighted to announce that our after-lunch speaker will be Matt Dawson MBE. Matt Dawson is known for his vital role in rugby and for helping bring victories to his teams.


With 77 caps under his belt, he is England’s most capped scrum half, captaining the side 9 times. He played for Northampton and the London Wasps as well as England, and

represented the British & Irish Lions on three tours. During the 1998 tour to Australia and New Zealand – ‘The Tour from Hell’ – Matt was congratulated on his leadership. He also captained the England Rugby team to win the Six Nations Championships in 2000.


His position on ‘A Question of Sport’ has elevated him from a well-known rugby player to a national TV personality. In 2006 he took part in the BBC’s ‘Celebrity MasterChef’ and won. Matt then put on his dancing shoes to become the runner up in the BBC’s primetime programme ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, which attracted over 12 million viewers per show.


His love for sport, his passion for food, and his experience with media makes him a unique, talented and popular speaker for our event in 2018.
