New Venue Announced For 2018 Kbsa Conference and AGM 24
Jan '18

The Kbsa has announced a change of venue for the 2018 Conference, AGM and Networking Dinner, as it plans to provide an even better and bigger event this year.

The 2018 event will be held at the four star Stratford Manor Hotel, located just five minutes from Stratford-upon-Avon.

“We have kept the same convenient location of Stratford upon Avon,” says Kbsa national chair Richard Hibbert, “but chosen a more modern hotel that has all the facilities we need to deliver an enhanced and improved conference experience for our members.

“The number of meeting rooms available will allow us to present a programme of workshops that will be available to all, rather than the delegates having to choose between them, which is something members requested in their feedback from last year.

“The bedrooms at Stratford Manor have recently been refurbished and it also has a relaxing spa and health club for delegates to enjoy.”

The Kbsa is celebrating 40 years in 2018, so there will be some extra special surprises in store too.”

Details released so far include the pre-conference, exclusive retailer dinner on Tuesday 11 September.  This will be followed by an all-day conference on Wednesday 12 September.  Workshops and presentations will also be part of the day, which will culminate in the awards dinner in the evening.

Richard adds, “We are confident that retail members will find the 2018 conference, stimulating and full of essential business information that can directly benefit their business.”
