The new venue, which will host the 2018 Conference, AGM and Networking Dinner, will be the four-star Stratford Manor Hotel, located just five minutes from the iconic town of Stratford-upon-Avon.
“We have kept the same convenient location of Stratford-upon-Avon,” said 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 11th September 2018. This will be followed by an all-day conference on Wednesday 12th September. Workshops and presentations will also be part of the day, which will culminate in the awards dinner in the evening.
Hibbert added, “We are confident that retail members will find the 2018 conference, stimulating and full of essential business information that can directly benefit their business.”Kbsa | kbsa.org.uk
