WEBINAR Bira & Bira Direct: changes and opportunities

Date(s) - 26/08/2020
10:00 am - 11:00 am

Bira is the Trade Association for Independent Retailers in the UK and its Buying Agency is totally dedicated to helping its members exist and prosper.

Following the announcement of “Lock Down” by Boris Johnson on Monday March 23rd the industry feared, but no one could predict, what was about to happen to the UK Retail Market.

So why did Bira take the actions in did in April? And how has it come through the experience in a healthier state than it entered? Bira would like to share the changes it has, and is, making, to turn it into a fitter, leaner and more responsive Buying Agency for both its retail and supplier members.

Jeff Moody, MD Bira Direct, will cover the changes happening within Bira Direct, and Bira itself, which have resulted in increased business for suppliers and members alike whilst also giving pointers to where Bira Direct is moving in terms of investment and opportunities for growth.
Bira will use its BHETA webinar on Wednesday 26th August to focus on how it is tackling the issues of credit agencies looking to reduce exposure in UK Retail as well as investing in more digital solutions for its membership to continue this recent return to consumers ‘buying local’.

The two trade Associations have never had a better opportunity to work closer together to help our members grow their businesses, and to further the lobbying voice of the industry. This is the time to work together to establish a more progressive buying and payments opportunity for the Independent retailer landscape. Please don’t miss this opportunity to hear Bira’s thoughts and make your voice heard.
