Booking is coming to a close for the Charity Retail Conference 2016. We have a packed programme and a sold-out exhibition … plus some extra little surprises.

Look out for two member benefit launches:

  • Stone King legal retainer service – at stand 29
  • Social Value Toolkit – session B7 and further announcements

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 far, so there should be something for everyone – whether you’re interested in gift aid, volunteer recruitment, social media, specialist shops, brand awareness and more.
