The June 2017 conference, “Change, Challenge and Opportunity”, has seen all 450 delegate places booked within 10 weeks of launch.

A total of 72 merchant companies will attend alongside 60 supplier companies. The merchant delegates include 16 of the top 20 merchant companies and all four national merchant groups.

“The conference theme resonated with people post-Brexit,” said BMF managing director John Newcomb.

“In uncertain times it is even more important for the industry to come together and this is undoubtedly the biggest event in the industry’s calendar for 2017.”
