Northern Regional Meeting – Reflections of Summer – Virtual Event
Friday 28 May @ 10:00 am - 1:15 pm
NABMA is pleased to announce details of the first of 3 Regional Zoom Meetings that will have a focus on the northern area – however attendance at all 3 events will be welcomed.
Why a Regional Event?
The three Summer Regional Conferences will focus on how markets have emerged from the latest lockdown since 12 April and look at the future of the industry. This alongside a range of topical market issues. 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.
