Bookings surge for KBSA AGM & National Conference
The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association has reported a record number of bookings already for this year's AGM, National Conference and Networking Dinner being held at The Welcombe Hotel, Stratford on Avon, on 27th September. During the dinner, the 2016 KBSA Designer Awards will be presented.
Many of the shortlisted entrants have already booked their places. In addition, the KBSA Excellence Awards; namely the KBSA Customer Service Award along and with the KBSA Training Award, (sponsored by the CITB) and the Supplier Awards are also being presented.
Speakers include Uwe Hanneck, consultant and acting KBSA CEO; Lord Digby Jones, former head of the CB I; Rita Clifton CBE, international branding expert; Andrew Davis, social media expert; Marianne Shillingford, creative director Dulux; and Peter Stonely, consumer legislation expert.
"There is something for everyone to help develop and improve their own activities and we are already looking forward to the day with relish," says Tina Riley, KBSA national chair. "I would add that bookings to date are well ahead of last year, and I would urge members wishing to avoid disappointment to book sooner rather than later!
"We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our key sponsor of the Conference, Neff, and key sponsor of the Designer Awards - Blum - for their support."
Neff and Blum will also be participating with other sponsors PWS and AEG in 'Meet The Corporate'. Retail members are encouraged to talk to KBSA Corporate sponsors from 11:00. The AGM & Conference will start at 14:00, with registration at 13:30.
