The Facilities Industry Summer River Boat Party

Deborah Longstaff, Associate Director of FM UK, Eden Brown

The Facilities Industry Summer (FIS) River Boat Party will set sail on Thursday July 11.

Current sponsors are AJ Products, CTS - Combined Technical Services, FSI, Grundfos, Safe Group, SPIE and The Facilities Event.

The Entertainment Sponsor is PTSG.

And the Pre-Boarding Drinks Sponsor is Eden Brown. We caught up with the company's Associate Director of FM UK, Deborah Longstaff at last year's event to ask her why she thinks ThisWeekinFM puts the fizz into to the FIS River Boat Party.


The River Boat Party is one of the most popular events in the facilities industry’s calendar. This year's trip down the Thames on the Dixie Queen paddle steamer is  already sailing towards a 400 person sellout. 2018 saw a 100 people on a waiting list - with most disappointed as very few cancellation tickets became available.

Sponsorship opportunities are still free which come with a table booking. There are also a limited number of table bookings available. Walk-on tickets are selling fast.

We meet at Butler's Wharf Pier at 6:00pm for an unforgettable evening of great hospitality. The boat sails under Tower Bridge (which opens just for the occasion) at about 10:00pm as we prepare to dock and head to the after party.
