Have you booked yet for the first of our Regional Events 2022?
The first of 3 Regional Zoom Meetings will have a focus on the northern area – however attendance at all 3 events will be welcomed. The Northern programme and speakers list is below.
Each event was very popular last year. They are free and will involve some of your local colleagues, members of the NABMA team and our sponsors. Please support your colleagues and let’s talk markets.
Our grateful thanks are extended to Market Place who are the NABMA principal sponsor for 2021/22.
Why a Regional Event?
The three Summer Regional Conferences will focus on how markets are emerging from the pandemic, the change agenda alongside a range of topical market issues. The theme of the events is ‘Markets Delivering Change’. Each event will have a regional flavour as we want to give people a chance to talk about what is happening locally. We also want to help you build up local contacts. Feel free however to sign up for any, or all the events.

Markets Delivering Change
From NABMA President Councillor Mick Barker and Market Place, our Event Sponsor
Markets meeting the Challenges
Two years after the start of the pandemic a market team looks at the impact of the pandemic, the changes in their high street and what help, if any, their market activities have been given. How does this market view its future?
Steven Hadfield, Markets & Business Development Manager, Tameside Council
Markets and Planning for Change
A private sector market company looks at the impact of the pandemic in terms of market management, operational changes and event planning. What are the options that may be available in an era of change for market history and tradition?
Nick Rhodes, Chief Executive, Market Place
Markets and the Policy and Legal Framework
The pandemic has seen changes in planning legislation, the encouragement of flexibility in the use of public realm, and freedoms to extend market activities. NABMA looks at the implications and impact on markets and local strategies arising from these government announcements.
Graham Wilson OBE, NABMA Legal and Policy Consultant
Climate Change and Markets
How are markets delivering change to help communities have a more sustainable future? We share good practice in terms of buildings, energy, waste and operational change.
Steve Mason, Head of Markets, Leeds City Council
The Modern Market Manager
How is the role of the traditional manager changing? What is the interaction between place and market management? What is the skill set needed to deliver professional market operations? We ask the questions and look at how NABMA can further support market managers, teams and their professional development.
John Walker, Markets Manager, Calderdale Council
