BMF has announced that its first Brexit Forum will take place on Wednesday 23 January 2019 at the BMF, Coventry Business Park.
The event will start with coffee at 9.00 am and be followed by presentations, which will start at 9.30 am, as well as a networking lunch.
The Forum programme will cover a range of Brexit topics that the BMF feels would be top of most Directors’ and Managers’ minds.
The event, which will be chaired by John Newcomb, BMF CEO, is open to Merchants, Service members and Suppliers. It is restricted to a maximum of 2 people per organisation, with ideally one of them being a Director or Manager.
This event is free to members, but the BMF has said that if you book a place and do not attend a cancellation charge of £20 may be incurred to cover catering costs.
