Be part of IHEEM's 75th Anniversary this August

29 June 2018

This August marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Institute and to celebrate this key milestone, IHEEM is hosting a special anniversary Drinks Reception on Friday 17 August in the head office city of Portsmouth. 

The evening will be held on board HMS Warrior on the waterfront at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and will celebrate the heritage and innovation of the Institute as IHEEM sets the scene for its next 75 years. 

HMS Warrior, Britain's first iron-hulled armoured battleship, was launched in 1860 and was the pride of Queen Victoria's fleet creating a lasting legacy on naval architecture and design. The reception will provide a fantastic opportunity to explore this engineering marvel and experience life on board. 

Attending the event will be local dignitaries, members of the Institute, key stakeholders from across the sector, specially invited guests and the IHEEM head office team. 


1830 - 1930: Guests who are interested in touring the ship can board and enjoy an hour of free-flow around HMS Warrior including the Lower Decks which will close from 1930

1930 - 2005: Glass of prosecco served with canapes on the Upper Deck with a String Quartet providing light background music 

2005 - 2015: Guests invited downstairs to Officers’ Half Deck for speeches

2015 - 2045: Series of short speeches led by IHEEM President, Pete Sellars

2045 - 2130: Guests invited to explore the Main Gun Deck, Officer’s Half Deck and exclusive access to the Captain’s Cabin

2130 - 2200: String quartet to play as guests depart
