The 2019 Annual Members’ South West Lunch took place at The Grand Hotel, Torquay on Friday 4 October. Aside from member networking and the opportunity to host colleagues and clients, the Annual Lunch included the presentation of the CECA (South West) Awards – celebrating the remarkable achievements of the young women and men who are our rising stars.

Thanks to all our members who supported the event, with a record turnout in excess of 170 people. The Chairman, Dave Ellis, and Regional Director, Paul Santer, also hosted influential industry guests to widen networking opportunities for members.
