Hundreds of youngsters taking part in YTM 2023 campaign

THE Young Traders Market campaign continues to grow, with around 500 16 to 30-year-olds anxious to take part.
The National Final, to be held at the magnificent Waterside in Stratford-upon-Avon on the bank holiday weekend Friday and Saturday August 25 and 26, will only be able to accommodate about 90 participants.
But all who have applied have been given the opportunity to take part in numerous local events that have been taking place nationwide, and in one of 10 regional finals now taking place (see panel). NMTF CEO Joe Harrison said: “The whole point of our campaign over the years has been to get new blood into the markets industry and on that alone we have certainly succeeded.”
As well as a prestigious trophy the overall winner will receive £500 cash and a mobile credit card terminal from our sponsors Multipay.
