Creating and Sustaining Successful Markets – NABMA One Day Conference 2016

Creating and Sustaining Successful Markets – NABMA One Day Conference 2016



NABMA is pleased to announce details of this popular January event which will once again be held at the prestigious venue of the Council House, Birmingham for the first major markets event of the New Year.

This year the theme builds on the substantial work programme from Mission for Markets, shared by NABMA and NMTF, and the research and feedback that was generated. After spending the last year looking at the challenges and opportunities facing markets, the conference will cover some of the themes and share and celebrate the good practice and innovation that was discovered in the research. The big questions always focus around how a community creates a successful market and the tools needed? The next issue is always around sustaining and developing the market further. We aim to present some examples from market operators who have achieved success, and are willing to share their recipes.

Our draft programme includes the political view from Westminster and case studies of redevelopment agendas at Birmingham and Greenwich. We take the themed areas of Mission for Markets and look at management models, dealing with contract management and examining the Markets Check List that needs to be in place for all operators. We ask how communities can be more involved in their markets and look at who is driving new markets and innovation.

The January event would not be complete without the awards ceremony for Great British Market of the Year. Celebrate with us the very best in our various entry categories and be there to share first hand who will take the acclaimed title of Britain’s Favourite Market 2016.  Sponsored by KPR Midlink the judging panel will reveal the winners of this prestigious competition.

We have provided a very special early booking offer with three delegates able to attend for just £250. I urge you to book early as in recent years this One Day Conference has been oversubscribed. Please book early therefore to avoid disappointment.
