NABMA Annual Conference 2018

NABMA Annual Conference 2018

The 2018 NABMA Conference is to be held 16th – 18th September 2018 at the Crowne Plaza, Stratford Upon Avon. This is the premier markets industry Conference and the one that everyone involved in the markets industry needs to attend.

After last year’s very successful Conference at the same venue we are once again returning to Stratford upon Avon, a medieval market town in England’s West Midlands and the 16th Century birth place of William Shakespeare. The Crowne Plaza Hotel is located in the heart of the town on the riverside and is a wonderful Conference venue.

The conference theme is ‘Markets Promoting Culture, Locality and Tourism’. Our programme will look at how markets can, and do, contribute to the three strategy areas that are so important to local and visitor economies. The programme also looks at traders of the future and building a new generation of market entrepreneurs. Delegates can also enjoy workshops, good practice sessions and update on GDPR, market franchise rights and management options.
