Young Movers take on London

Jul 21, 2014
The Young Movers Conference took place at the Regent’s ParK Marriot Hotel from 1-3 May, 2014 with 170 attendees from across Europe and beyond coming together for networking – and a bit of fun.


The conference included a programme of events that gave the delegates the opportunity to see some of the sights of London in a relaxed atmosphere, and make a trip to Thorpe Park theme park. 


Jamie Durrans from G&R Removals joined in.  He said that it was a well organised conference with a great programme of events. “It was great to meet people in similar job roles,” he said.  “It was good to meet people who are new to the industry and in similar positions to myself, and to have relevant and beneficial talks with the leaders of some of the top moving companies.  It’s a good way to share experiences and learn from each other.”


Gerard Geijtenbeek from Roldo Rent has been a sponsor and supporter of the Young Mover conferences since 2001 and is one of the few sponsors to have a long-term relationship with the organization. “We sponsor the conferences because we strongly believe that the conference contributes to the development of the moving industry,” he explained. “A more educated youth, stronger relationships and the exchange of knowledge will lead to a more professional industry which is in the long-term a benefit for the suppliers as well. The participants of the conferences will be tomorrow’s business leaders, so we are not focussing on a short-term benefits but on long-term relationships.”


Gerard said that the Young Movers Conference was successful because there was a very open and familiar atmosphere including an interesting programme of events such as fun at Thorpe Park, a view of the city from the Thames, a treasure hunt and tea at the Ritz.  “One of the most important things of the Young Movers conferences is the networking and the participants had plenty of opportunities to see each other. They also listened to UK business leaders and did have the opportunity of exchanging knowledge with them.”


Next year Young Movers will be in Sofia, Bulgaria.
