The Kbsa signed up thirteen new retail members and logged a record number of serious enquiries during KBB 2022.
Kbsa chair Richard Hibbert said, “We had our busiest year ever, with a constant flow of visitors to the stand. We welcomed a record number of potential new members as well as taking time to meet with our current members and corporate supporters”.
“After two years of virtual business meetings it was fantastic to have the opportunity to meet face to face and share the Kbsa’ s exciting plans for growth.
“The new members that signed-up will benefit from our unrivalled package of benefits for retailers, including a brand new legal and HR service. This enhanced package provides telephone support plus a library of over 700 written documents, and a tax investigation service, all free of charge to members, which could save members thousands of pounds in fees”.
“This year will be a significant year for the Kbsa as we drive forward our ambitious plans to grow the membership. Details will be announced soon about the return of Kbsa conference and designer awards in September. This event will embrace our global network and welcome all KBB retailers that have an interest in membership but who may not be members”.
“The support and business benefits that the Kbsa can provide will prove invaluable, as we negotiate the uncertain times that lie ahead”.
