BAR is governed by a Board of Directors who are responsible for setting policies, the strategic objectives and long-term direction of the Association, chaired by the BAR President. The Director General is responsible for the strategic, operational and commercial management of the BAR Secretariat and the implementation of the Board’s strategic objectives.


The BAR Annual Conference 2016 was held at the Pullman Hotel, London St Pancras. This vibrant hotel is just a 5 minute walk from London Euston and Kings Cross Station and has also been recently refurbished making it one of the most upscale hotels in the city!

With activities organised such as a red carpet event at Madame Tussauds where you can party with the stars, tours around the UK’s capital, inspiring speakers and of course finishing the event off in tradition with the Gala Dinner and Awards Evening where the DMotY, CMotY and for the second year running, OMotY winners will be announced, it promised to be a great event.

Delegates learned from a wide range of exciting business sessions and workshops, all designed to promote best practice within the professional removals and storage industry.

The 2017 flagship event will be held in the stunning city of Cardiff.
