Join Vend at the bira National Conference and Awards 2018

Are you an independent retailer in the UK? If so, you won’t want to miss the bira National Conference and Awards.

When: Thursday 10th May

Where: Jurys Inn, Watling St, Burbage, Hinckley LE10 3JA

It’s hands-down one of our favourite events for independents in the UK, and this year is shaping up to be their best one yet!

At the 2018 conference, you will learn all about the current retailing trends driven by today’s consumer behaviour, and how you, as an independent business, should evolve.

You’ll walk away with practical retail insights and have clear idea of how to implement them in your business.

We’ll also be hosting a breakout session with Vaughan Rowsell, Founder at Vend. Join us to hear about the top Retail Trends and Predictions for 2018, where Vaughan will discuss trends and issues that he thinks will make the biggest impact on independent retail in the very near future — and what you can do to overcome them.

“There is so much changing retail at the moment — sensors and smart devices, big players like Amazon, and evolving shopper behaviour. It’s an exciting time, but also a challenging one. That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with bira as their chosen ePOS for retail and sponsoring their National Conference. Together we want to give support, information and inspiration to independent retailers.”
– Vaughan Rowsell

Don’t forget to book your ticket – there’s so many inspirational speakers and sessions lined up over the day including Levi Roots and many more!
