BHETA is holding its next Credit Forum on March 26th including its regular update on all current credit and risk management issues in the retail sector.
The event follows on from the pre-Christmas forum which was the best attended ever with twenty DIY and housewares suppliers around the table. BHETA Credit Forums are open to all members and update attendees on the latest credit and risk management issues in retail trading.
The agenda includes current trading climate, specific retail accounts and how they are performing against trading terms, topical issues such as corporate purchases and reinvestment as well as a general overview of the retail sector.
BHETA’s housewares sector director, Will Jones commented, “While cynics could argue that it’s the challenging nature of the times which motivates the rising turn out, the general conversation at BHETA credit forums is actually getting more upbeat. Inevitably certain retail names are mentioned as they always are, but now these namechecks are very much in the context of starting or restarting relationships in the wake of new investments.
“It’s all about mutual support yielding mutual benefit and the overall conclusion was that while times might still be challenging, and the High Street is still a difficult place, there are a good number of retailers reporting growth including positive Christmas volumes, and it is an increasingly opportune time to explore all these routes to market again.”
Aimed primarily at credit and finance professionals within supplier businesses, the March event will as usual be hosted by Experian and is workshop and discussion-based. Credit Forums start at 9.30 am at Federation House, Vyse Street, Birmingham.
BHETA members who have not previously been to a Credit Forum are invited free of charge on the first occasion, while a full Credit Forum membership costs £350 per annum for the three sessions.
The BHETA Credit forum has been developed after consultation with the management of BHETA and key players in the industry.
The forum which is aimed at credit and/or finance professionals is workshop and discussion based rather than lecture based presentations.
Members are invited to attend their first meeting FREE OF CHARGE.
