BETA Celebrates 25th Anniversary

IT will be celebrations all round at next year's BETA International as the first day of the fair, February 16 is the 25th anniversary of the association being registered as a company.

Established in 1978 by Antony Wakeham MBE, the team at BETA is planning a series of events throughout 2003 to celebrate the 25th birthday.

BETA Chief Executive and Secretary Claire Williams said: "We will mark the anniversary with an official celebration on the first day of BETA International and hope to gather as many past presidents together as we can.

"This will be followed by further events to mark the anniversary, which we are currently in the process of planning.

"Launched in 1978, a membership of 80 was achieved in the first 6 months and the first BETA council meetings took place the same year with Harold Knight being elected as the first BETA Chairman. It is incredible to look back and see how the association has changed and developed.

"We are delighted that BETA is now regarded as the driving force in lobbying, offering advice to the whole industry and being there to support members on a wide range of issues.

"The 25th birthday is a great occasion to celebrate and we would like the whole industry to support the anniversary.
