|Hello from the new Routemaster Association Events Officer|
Feb 5th 2013, 13:06
I would take this opportunity to introduce myself after confirmed as the new Events Officer at the AGM last weekend.
As some of you will know I run Routemaster4Hire up here in North Wales where we offer for hire RM765 and RM548; I call this my hobby business as my main day to-day focus is running an events production company called BusinessAV Ltd.
At BusinessAV we organise and run conferences and awards dinners for clients all over the UK and Europe; we own, and operate the audio-visual equipment at these events as well as offering our clients video production and web streaming. I have run this business since 2002 and so have a good few years’ events experience under my belt.
So how do I see my role within the association?
My main focus will be Routemaster 60 which is planned for summer 2014, I don’t have much information on this yet as there is no date or venue confirmed, but the aim is to make it bigger and better than Routemaster 50 which you may remember was held in 2004 at Finsbury Park and attracted around 100 Routemasters.
Putting Routemaster 60 aside, one of my key objectives is supporting RM owners who take their vehicles to local events or rallies. Naturally the core membership is London based, but Routemasters nowadays are not limited to the Capital, they are owned and operated all over the UK, so I would love to hear from you if you are taking your bus to a local event anywhere in the country? We can publicise it on the Association website and Facebook/twitter pages and maybe get some other RM owners along?
The way I see it is quite simple - the more we get our buses seen the more interest we generate from the public and the greater chance we have in attracting the younger generation to our hobby, so please drop me an email with any information on events you are attending.
As well as event information I also welcome your comments and suggestions on how I can help you in my new roll.
I look forward to hearing from you.
