67th IFD Congress & Awards

Guests arrived on Wednesday afternoon and were hosted for a welcome reception in the Member’s Room of the Scottish Parliament, hosted by MSP Christine Grahame with a tour of the parliament chambers.


Thursday saw the start of the conference which was held within the Radisson Hotel on the Royal Mile. Edinburgh Castle played host to the Traditional Evening that featured speeches from some of the Roofing Industry leaders, followed by a drinks reception, relaxed bowl food, whisky tasting and a performance from traditional highland dancers. The guests were then led down the esplanade by a traditional ‘Beating Retreat’ as they departed the Castle.


The Gala Dinner and Awards were held on the final evening at the Assembly Rooms in George street for over 300 guests. Sensational opera singer Ciara Harvie opened the Champagne drinks reception, the awards ceremony was hosted by the wonderful Caroline Blair and phenomenal pop band Corra lead guests into the early hours with traditional Ceilidh dancing and pop covers.

I had the fantastic honour of being only the second Scotsman to become President of the International Federation of the Roofing Trade (IFD) in September 2019 at our annual Congress in Edinburgh.
After a personal recommendation I asked YOURgb Events if they could work with our International organisation in delivering a hefty programme of events over 4 days.
They were simply fantastic from start to finish and I could not speak more highly of Gilly and her team.
Thank you YOURgb for making my personal honour such a wonderful experience for Norma and I. Friends for life.

Graeme Millar, President of the International Federation of the Roofing Trade (IFD)
