The sun shines on the EDA Summer Event 2022

July 8, 2022
Guests were back onboard the Dixie Queen once again – they enjoyed a cold drink as they cruised down the Thames in the summer sun.

Over 170 attendees, from 111 organisations, disembarked for a champagne reception and lunch before the EDA Engagement Winners were announced by EDA President, Chris Ashworth.

Guests spent the afternoon at Trinity Buoy Wharf (filming location for James Bond “The World is not Enough” among other shows and movies) on the riverside deck, overlooking the O2 Arena and the Thames.

How do the EDA Engagement Awards work?

Your business is awarded with an “engagement” point every time it takes part in or “engages” with an EDA benefit. The EDA tracks your engagement from 1 April to 31 March each year and the Summer Event celebrates the most engaged Manufacturer Affiliates and Wholesaler Members.

Over the year there were plenty of opportunities to engage with your trade association. Engagement Points are awarded across a range of activities including:
