The BMF & NMBS Independent Merchant Forum wll take place on Tuesday 7th November at the BMF’s HQ and training centre in Coventry.
Free delegate places are limited to two per company. To reserve your place email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02476 854988.
John Newcomb, BMF CEO, said:
“The content has been designed for small and medium sized (SME) merchants where the business owners take a hands-on role within the business. This includes a significant number of BMF members, but we recognise that there are many other SME merchants who we don’t represent. NMBS is the largest buying society in the UK for independent merchants and joining with them to create and promote the event means that a far wider audience has the opportunity to benefit.”
Chris Hayward, NMBS MD, said:
“We are extremely pleased to be working with the BMF to facilitate the first educational Forum specially created for the vibrant SME merchant sector. In order to make the event as open and accessible as possible our two organisations are jointly underwriting all costs so entry is free to delegates.”
