Secure your place early for our ever popular ADS Summer BBQ. We are delighted to invite our members for a relaxed afternoon of face-to-face networking, where you can enjoy BBQ food and drinks in the grounds of one of London's top venues. We expect given the demand and buzz around in-person events still resonating through the industry, coupled with the return of Farnborough International Airshow taking place two weeks after the BBQ, this event will prove even more popular, so we encourage you to book your place as soon as possible.

The event will allow you to meet other like-minded individuals within the industry in an informal relaxing environment, whilst enjoying the BBQ, a glass of wine, cold beer or soft drinks provided.

With a short welcome from Kevin Craven, ADS CEO, the remainder of the afternoon will provide you with a great opportunity to network, ask questions, meet various ADS teams to ensure you are making the most of your ADS membership.

Since it's first launch, the event has sold out in previous years, therefore we recommend you book sooner rather than later to aviod dissappointment.
