BAG March Board Meeting and Northern Ireland Regional Networking Reception - 22 March 2022 

Yesterday, on 22 March 2022 the BAG Board travelled to Belfast to hold their latest quarterly meeting followed by the  Regional Networking Reception in Belfast at the Titanic Hotel.  Board members discussed latest updates on BAG's strategic priorities and explored new areas such as skills and future workforce. We would like to thank board members for their participation as well as  our guest speaker Larry O’Toole, Head of Functions – Infrastructure at Dublin Airport who spoke at the Regional Reception as well as the Chair Brian Lewis from RSK, the Deputy Chair Freddie Patterson from Lagan and BAG Board member Darrell Swanson for their contribution to the event,


BAG facilitates three BAG Regions (one of which being Northern Ireland) which allow BAG members to have a voice and forum in the locality. Their aim is to provide a focus for members to help improve their penetration of UK, the local airport market and global aviation markets using the region as a focus for sharing information, collaboration and networking. BAG Regions are open to all BAG members, but it is hoped that they will enable greater participation in BAG by the regional offices of BAG member companies and attract new members for whom a London based offer has been too difficult to access. If you have any questions regarding the regions please contact Hannah Sallabanks.

BAG Members Day & Networking Reception - Sustainability and Innovation- 10 March 2022 *Recording & Slides Available*

On 10 March 2022, BAG held their first LIVE BAG Members Day in 2022 in central London from 13:00-17:30 followed by a Networking Reception. The event was themed around Sustainability and Innovation.

Similarly, to our October 2021 session, the 2022 March BAG Members Day will once again ran as an interactive workshop for all member companies.

Client expectations around sustainability are escalating all the while as they strive towards their net zero and decarbonization targets.   It is no longer an option for the supply chain to ignore this important challenge.  So we are delighted to once again welcome back the Connected Places Catapult to this Members Day to help guide BAG members on their own transformative journey towards enhanced sustainability through innovation.

We would like to thank all our guests speakers and members for a great networking and informative session!. You can view all the presentations
