91st NTDA Annual Dinner to be sponsored by Maritime Cargo Services


On Thursday the 5th November 2020, the NTDA will be holding its 91st Annual Dinner, sponsored by Maritime Cargo Services, the leading provider of professional freight forwarding and logistics solutions to the retail and wholesale industries, together with the 7th Tyre Industry Awards Ceremony, sponsored by Sailun, at the prestigious VOX Conference Centre, Resorts World, Birmingham NEC.

Maritime Cargo Services, which is a supplier member of the NTDA, has been a long-term supporter of the Association’s flagship events having sponsored individual tyre industry awards since 2014 and as the sole sponsor of the 2019 Tyre Industry Conference. This year it has, once again, stepped up to partner the NTDA as it celebrates 90 years of supporting the UK’s tyre industry.

With more than 9 months to go, 275 guests from tyre manufacturing, wholesale, distribution, retail and the associated automotive aftermarket have already booked for the annual dinner.


The VOX is easily accessible by car, train and plane, as it’s only a stone’s throw from the NEC, Birmingham International Train Station and Birmingham International Airport. Free event parking will be available on the day and all guests arriving at the VOX using Avanti West Coast Trains can also enjoy 20% off* selected routes. (*T’s & C’s apply, please see Avanti West Coast Trains website for details.)


Members at £135+VAT per person or £115+VAT per person for group bookings of 10 or more.

Non-members at £195+VAT per person or £175+VAT per person for group bookings of 10 or more.

This event is extremely popular, with 600 guests having attended in 2019, so dinner places are limited and bookings operate on a first come, first served, basis. To avoid disappointment please contact Alison Keitch via email: or telephone: 01296 482128.


There are dozens of accommodation options for all budgets both immediately onsite, such as the Genting Hotel, and within a few minutes-walk or cab ride from the venue such as the Arden Hotel, Crown Plaza, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Metropole, Holiday Inn Express, Moxy Hotel, Novotel, Premier Inn and three Ibis hotels to name but a few. We are also working with the VOX HotelFinder service, which can often negotiate better room rates.

2020 Award Sponsors:

Confirmed 2020 award sponsors already include: Bridgestone, Compilator, Continental, Hankook, Marsh Commercial, Pirelli, Scots Auto Scene, Snap-on, The Commercial Vehicle Show, Traxx Tyres and The Worshipful Company of Wheelwrights.

Speaking about the relationship his company has with the tyre industry and what the sponsorship means to him, Maritime’s MD and founder Rob Shelley said: “Maritime Cargo Services is incredibly proud to be part of your world and to be the sponsors of the NTDA’s 91st Annual Dinner and official Drinks Reception. Our vast experience means that we truly are a safe pair of hands for all of the tyre industry’s shipping and transport needs and we look forward to sharing another great evening with our friends and customers.”

After the huge success of his 2018 appearance, and subsequent demand for an encore, Stefan’s co-host for the 2020 Tyre Industry Awards Ceremony is the wonderfully wacky TV personality Mark Durden-Smith.
