Our range of network meetings and the AGM bring together charity delegates, corporate members, speakers from the commercial retail sector, academics and others to share their knowledge, ideas and expertise.

Free to attend for both our charity and corporate members, every meeting has a packed programme. We look at the current retail scene, hear from successful charity members and corporate partnerships that may inspire you, take a look at our recent lobbying and policy work to benefit the sector – there really is something for everyone. Plus every event has a small exhibition.

Catering in 2020

In our efforts to go green, all Charity Retail Association events will be 100% vegetarian-catered by default. You are still very welcome to opt for a meat/fish-option so please make sure this is noted in the dietary requirements section when booking, alongside any other dietary requirements you may have.
