One of the key reasons many companies join our Corporate Membership scheme is because of our flagship event: The Charity Retail Conference, Awards and Exhibition.

Who sponsored and exhibited in 2019?

Exhibition plan 2019 – East Midlands Conference Centre

This is a residential event which currently takes place at East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.

The feedback received on 2019’s exhibition from Corporate and Charity Members has been fantastic.

“Just a little note to say thank you for another wonderful conference. The work you and you colleagues put in is obvious and makes for a very organised and smooth flowing conference. After all these years, we are still meeting new potential clients and it is always lovely to see old faces too.”
Rachel Hickinbotham, Monro

“THANK YOU for such an excellent event. Charities were telling us how much they had learned from the conference sessions, as well as enjoying the whole event. We also received interest from 40+ charities!”
George Cook, Pop-Up Retail

“We found the conference to be really beneficial and we’re looking forward to exhibiting next year.”
Louise McAlindon, Paper Dove

Partner with us
Included within the cost of exhibition spaces is accommodation, catering, focus and plenary sessions, drinks reception and Awards Ceremony entry, including gala dinner, for two people. Headline and Charity Retail Awards sponsorships include four people plus Charity Retail Association membership.

Sponsorships and stand spaces (we do not have a shell scheme) go to Corporate Members as a priority. Members receive a considerable discount. The prices are at the member rate. Opportunities are, for the most part, filled by Corporate Members, with only one stand in 2019 going to a non-member.
