116th IOR Annual Dinner


On the Institute celebrated its 116th Anniversary Dinner of the Institute on 25th February this year at the Grange St Pauls' Hotel in the heat of the City of London with 400 members and guests.

The original “Fridge” Dinner is where contractors and manufacturers, engineers and technicians come together as individuals to celebrate achievement and support the Institute of Refrigeration. The evening is a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, spend time with your customers and meet new contacts at the same time as having a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining evening.  

£1087 was raised by donation for the Stroke Association and the same amount for the IOR Presidents' Fund for educational initiatives.
