Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

No messing about on the river for these young professionals

EAST Midlands Young Planners (EMYP) is set to host its annual summer social on 11 July 2019, which will be a social cruise along the River Trent. The group, which represents young planners across the East Midlands region and further afield, is made up of 280 members working in planning positions and allied professions.

The summer social is open to members and non-members and will be a great opportunity for people to network in a relaxed and social setting. The event will allow attendees to take in some of the great scenery along the banks of the river Trent as well as the fantastic developments that have recently been built or are under construction.

Registration and drinks will take place at the Brewhouse Bar and Kitchen from 5pm with the boat departing from the Embankment at 6pm. The evening will include drinks and a Caribbean barbeque buffet during the three-hour river cruise. The event will finish at 9.30pm with optional drinks afterwards.

This year’s event has been sponsored by Roythornes Solicitors and Ramm Sanderson Ecology. Charlotte Lockwood, a committee member of the EMYP and an associate at Roythornes, said:

“We are delighted to sponsor the event this year as we see the EMYP as providing a really useful hub for young planners to meet, share knowledge, develop their contacts and progress their professional development.

“The summer social is a great opportunity for people with a planning role or a vested interest in planning development and construction matters across the East Midlands to network and build relationships as well as meet new contacts.

“This year’s event is already proving popular with half of the tickets sold already. So if people want to attend what is set to be a wonderful evening then you can secure your ticket now by visiting”

The EMYP aims to bring together planners with up to 10 years post graduate planning experience via thought provoking and relevant CPD events, social gatherings and networking opportunities across the region. Membership is a 50:50 split of members between the private and public sectors.
