bira Conference 2018 sessions confirmed

Delegates at the bira national conference and awards on 10 May in Hinckley Island, Leicestershire will have three streams of inspiring talks to choose from as well as the main presentations.

Breakout sessions entitled Grow, Innovate and Challenge, which proved so popular in 2017, are being revived so that visitors can pick and choose which topics and new ideas they want to address.

Incoming bira national president for 2018-19, Surinder Josan of All Seasons DIY in Smethwick, said: “The breakout sessions have been designed with the future in mind. Hear from the likes of e-commerce specialists Trouva and Vend, who will talk about retail tech trends and using the internet to enhance your business. Promoting yourself online and using the tools available will be covered, as well as a not-to-be-missed cyber-crime prevention session, which will ensure you feel safe using the internet.”

Energy efficiency and the latest technology to prevent retail crime will also be key subjects for examination on the day. The breakout sessions will complement the main speakers at the conference, who include food entrepreneur Levi Roots sharing his recipe for success.
