Scottish setting for Benenden’s conference in 110th anniversary year

9th June 2015

On the occasion of its 110th anniversary since being founded in 1905, provider of health and wellbeing services, Benenden, will set up its annual conference at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre this week - bringing with it an estimated boost to the local economy in the region of £230,000.

The conference will see around 500 guests visiting the town, including 350 attendees from Benenden’s UK-wide branch network. Delegates will be coming together to debate a wide range of issues relating to the organisation at the venue in Edinburgh’s Haymarket area from Wednesday 10th to Friday 12th June.

The conference will be opened on Thursday morning by Councillor Elaine Aitken, Bailie of Edinburgh, and delegates will also welcome two special guest speakers: Richard Pennycook, Chief Executive of the Co-operative Group and the writer, columnist and broadcaster, Christina Patterson.

Renė Fraioli, Society Secretary at Benenden said: “As a Scot myself, I’m delighted that Benenden is returning to Edinburgh in its 110th anniversary year. The organisation last held its conference in the city 20 years ago, so a trip north of the border was due. It’s also the first conference since we welcomed Edinburgh-based brokers Keegan & Pennykid Limited into our group. They will be certain to show us the best of Edinburgh.

“Our annual conferences are an opportunity for members of our mutual organisation to come together from across the UK to discuss and decide upon what they feel is the right direction for Benenden to take. The enthusiasm of delegates in debating the propositions put forward by branches has not diminished in 110 years.

“We also look forward to welcoming Richard Pennycook and Christina Patterson who will respectively give us a valuable insight into the future of co-operation and UK healthcare.

“Our thanks go to Edinburgh and its people for playing host and providing what will surely be a memorable week in the city.”
