Join us on 13 February 2020 to get a unique perspective on what has been happening on the high street in 2019 and the key issues disrupting the UK market, which charity retailers must take note of in the year ahead not only to survive, but to thrive.
Aimed at charity retail heads, finance directors and senior leaders interested in how the retail trends of 2020 could affect their charity, this annual event will bring together a panel of experts from the commercial and charity retail worlds.
We'll start with a brief update from our very own Sophie Michael, National Head of Retail and Wholesale at BDO, covering:
- The headline retail trends from 2019
- The disruptive forces affecting the high street
- Priorities for retailers moving forward
Our panel of experts, including guest speakers Robin Osterley, CEO of the Charity Retail Association, and Jacqui Woolley, Retail Director at Marie Curie, will then bring this update to life through an engaging discussion around how these trends relate to you - the charity retailer - and what your key considerations for 2020 ought to be.
We’ll draw on the latest data captured through both our High Street Sales Tracker and Charity Retail Sales Tracker and explore the areas disrupting UK retailers, such as fast evolving shopping behaviours, rising costs, falling disposable income, and economic uncertainty, to name just a few.
