The Charity Retail Conference 2018 will be held at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham between 24-26 June. Our annual flagship event brings together delegates from all over the United Kingdom to share ideas, network with their peers, plus hear a fantastic selection of speakers.
On Monday 25 June 2018, delegates will relax and celebrate working in charity retail at the Charity Retail Awards 2018 , sponsored by Nisyst and hosted by comedian Stuart Goldsmith at the Colwick Hall Hotel. This is a fantastic networking, learning and business opportunity.
