NMTF Conference 2018 – Monday April 16th, Sheffield Novotel
Back to our roots for Conference & AGM 2018 — and you’re invited!
A unique network opportunity for operators, traders — and anyone else with an interest in the industry
TIME is fast approaching the NMTF’s AGM and Conference — an event specifically aimed at providing the opportunity for operators and traders to discuss the markets industry together.
The theme of this year’s conference in Sheffield on April 16th is Taking Stock of Markets.
A top line-up of speakers and a panel of experts representing both traders and operators will look at what the markets industry is like now, and more importantly how changing shopping habits are forcing us all to rethink our offer by making the retail environment more comfortable and providing the goods people want to buy.
In particular we will examine the innovative methods some enterprising operators are using to entice shoppers on to their markets, and how others are striving to ensure a younger breed of trader will fill the gaps as the older ones retire.
Appropriately enough holding the conference at the Novotel in Sheffield is taking the NMTF back to its roots, since it was founded in the city in 1899 just a stone’s throw from the hotel.
For the first time NMTF members, groups, market operators and anyone interested in the retail markets industry can see the costs and book online — go to: www.nmtf.co.uk/conference2018. The annual general meeting on the morning of Monday, April 16 will be strictly for members only.
But after the formalities are over, the conference that follows will be thrown open to all who want to attend — not just members but market operators, market managers and anyone else who has an interest in the UK’s retail markets industry.
Anyone is welcome to attend as a day delegate (free to NMTF members, £75 to others), but we hope most will want to spend the Monday evening with us and join in the fun at the President’s Dinner. Like last year the NMTF will pay the travel costs for Liaison Officers to get to and from the event — plus an overnight stay on the Monday night. The Novotel is a convenient two-minute walk from Sheffield Midland Station and backs on to the award-winning St. Paul’s Square and Peace Gardens.
