On Sunday, 19 November 2023, The Welding Institute celebrated the 100th anniversary the Institute of Welding Engineers with a riverboat cruise on the Thames, organised by the London and Kent Branches.

80 Professional Members, family members and guests attended, including TWI Research Director, Paul Woolin, TWI Group Manager for Marketing, Mike Emmett, London Branch Programme Secretary, Alan Denney and London Branch President, Eric Martin, who each gave a speech whilst cruising along the river.

The event was sponsored by IACS Ltd and IABCO (I.A Barnes and Company), guests boarded the boat, The Golden Salamader, and cruised along the Thames from Westminster to Tower Bridge. The guests were treated to prosecco/fruit juice upon arrival, which was then followed by a two-course buffet meal and live music from a three-piece jazz band.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the riverboat cruise and also to thank those who organised this wonderful event for their hard work.
