Hall of Fame on schedule
Posted: 14-Oct-2021 |
Organisers of the Mobil 1 NZ Road Transport Hall of Fame are pressing ahead with planning in the face of ongoing COVID-19 uncertainty.
The 2021 hall of fame evening was originally scheduled for September 24 alongside the Ia Ara Aotearoa Transporting New Zealand annual conference in Invercargill.
When the conference was cancelled the hall of fame event was postponed till Friday November 12.
“Our planning is going ahead, even if it ends up as a slightly smaller event this year because some people may be unable to travel,’’ says Bill Richardson Transport World events manager Adam Reinsfield.
“The recent lifting of the cap on numbers for gatherings has given us increased confidence,” he says
Preceding the hall of fame gala will be the past inductees and sponsors cocktail evening on Thursday November 11. Reinsfield says tickets are still available for both functions.
Six industry figures are to be inducted into the 2021 Hall of Fame and almost 500 guests are expected at the gala evening to be held at Bill Richardson Transport World in Invercargill.
