“Professionalising Markets” NABMA’s One Day Conference – 26th Jan 2017

“Professionalising Markets” NABMA’s One Day Conference – 26th Jan 2017

NABMA is pleased to announce details of our popular January event and we are grateful to Blachere Illumination for their continuing sponsorship of this event. Once again we return to the prestigious venue of the Council House, Birmingham for the first major markets event of the New Year. Click here for the Conference flyer.

This year the theme builds on the substantial work programme from Mission for Markets, shared by NABMA and NMTF, and the research and feedback that was generated. The work challenged operators to evaluate the way that they are running their markets, to audit the skills available to them, and establish a vision for the future. What skills and tools will make the successful market, manager and trader of the future? We will examine good practice and discuss the resources needed to professionalise markets to make them attractive, competitive and sustainable into the future.

Our draft programme includes sessions around introducing and retaining young people in markets; new partnerships; market management of the future; the influence of architecture to markets present and future and how we measure performance to enable us to make the big decisions.

The January event would not be complete without the awards ceremony for Great British Market of the Year. Celebrate with us the very best in our various entry categories and be there to share first hand who will take the acclaimed title of Britain’s Favourite Market 2017. Sponsored by KPR Midlink the judging panel will reveal the winners of this prestigious competition.

We have provided a very special early booking offer with three delegates able to attend for just £270. We urge you to book early as in recent years this One Day Conference has been oversubscribed. Please book early therefore to avoid disappointment.
