Herbert is world renowned as one of the greatest all-round racing drivers in the history of motorsport and is among an exclusive club of British drivers to have enjoyed a successful career in F1.

Herbert currently works alongside former world champion driver, Damon Hill, and other motorsport experts for Sky Sports F1, to provide specialist analysis during F1 race weekends.

The event, which is to be held at Doubletree by Hilton in Milton Keynes for the very first time overlooking the ArenaMK, home to MK Dons FC, will offer a vast array of new promotional, sponsorship and networking opportunities.

Guests will be able to settle comfortably in one location throughout both the conference and awards ceremony, while enjoying a drink overlooking the fantastic views of the MK Dons stadium.

Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive said: “We are thoroughly excited to welcome Johnny to what is sure to be the biggest and best IAAF event to date. Johnny has found great success and recognition throughout his career in motorsport and is therefore the ideal candidate to host our prestigious automotive aftermarket event.”

A booking form and more information will be sent out to members shortly.
