Charity Retail Conference 2016

Monday 27 – Tuesday 28 June, Keele University, Staffordshire ST5 5BG

Booking is now open for the Charity Retail Conference 2016. Engage, Develop, Grow is the theme of this year’s Conference, which has a packed programme of focus sessions, as well as a sold out exhibition.

This two-day event provides fantastic networking opportunities and time out to reflect and devise some genuinely creative ideas that will allow you to engage with your customers, develop new ways of working using technology and grow your income without necessarily growing the number of shops you have.

We welcome fantastic plenary speakers, including:

  • Clare Rayner, Director of The Retail Champion
  • Sophie Michael, National Head of Charities and Wholesale, BDO
  • Sir Stephen Bubb, Chief Executive, ACEVO

We also have a plethora of focus sessions taking place, the most of any conference, so there should be something for everyone – whether you’re interested in gift aid, volunteer recruitment, specialist shops or brand awareness.

This promises to be another fantastic networking, learning and business opportunity, and is expected to SELL OUT quickly.

Download our Conference & Exhibition Brochure for full programme details.

For further information and booking instructions please see the Charity Retail Conference page.
