The Kbsa has announced that the theme for the KBB Industry Conference 2023 will be Ingenuity & Building Success. The format will follow the outline of last year with one of the most popular speakers, Andy McLachlan, returning.
“We are building on the success of last year with a programme designed to inspire and inform,” says Kbsa chair Richard Hibbert.
“Places will be available to non-members once again and whilst we return to the same hotel we have a new dedicated conference suite, which will enable us to increase the number of attendees, and enhance the experience for our guests.
“Andy is returning as his presentation last year was so engaging and thought-provoking. He is an advocate for positive change and has a mission to help change business culture, which resonates with KBB retailers. This year he will focus on well-being in the workplace.”
The programme for the day will include two speakers in the morning, with three short presentations in the afternoon, which will lead into the panel discussion. An extended lunch break will allow time for networking and for delegates to visit the business services exhibition and advice surgery. This includes trusted suppliers and covers topics such as finance, credit card processing, HR and legal.
The KBB Industry Conference 2023 will include the popular retailer dinner on the evening before the conference, Tuesday 26 September, which has become a firm favourite with retailers who appreciate the opportunity to network with other business owners and build relationships. The Awards dinner will follow the conference on Wednesday 27 September.
“We hope to attract even more retailers than last year for what will be a must-attend event,” concludes Richard.
