The British Equestrian Trade Association (BETA) 2012 Conference and AGM is set to take place at Whittlebury Hall Hotel & Spa, near Towcester, Northamptonshire, on Monday 29 October.
Open to BETA members and non-members, the day offers an inspiring and informative programme of topical presentations by key industry speakers and plenty of prime networking opportunities.
Speakers include Guy Blaskey, marketing director of Blue Chip Feeds and owner of Pooch and Mutt, focusing on growing sales through online media, dressage rider Sophie Wells talking of her Paralympic experience, Felicity Hails, of Lloyds TSB, giving tips on how to improve relationships with banks, Paul Kelly, of Blacks Solicitors, explaining what employers need to know about social media, Todd McCully, of Government Grant and Tax Consultants, asking who’s missing out on funding for research and development, and Michael McNally, a partner at Warners Solicitors, advising how to avoid the pitfalls of distance selling.
“The conference is a fantastic way to top up on industry knowledge and keep abreast of all that is happening in the trade, and there’s plenty of time to catch up with colleagues and make valuable new contacts during coffee breaks and over lunch,” said BETA executive director Claire Williams. “Great care has been taken to ensure that the programme is relevant to all delegates, from manufacturers to retailers, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming everyone to the beautiful surroundings of Whittlebury Hall – our new venue for 2012.”
The conference runs from 9am to 3.40pm and costs ?45 plus VAT for members and ?60 plus VAT for non-members. Preferential rates are available for those wishing to take advantage of a pre-conference overnight stay with dinner.
