Essential reading for retailers and suppliers in the home improvement market

BHETA to host Credit Forum

Published: 2 March 2020 - Alex Fordham

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is holding its next Credit Forum on 24 March to include its regular update on all current credit and risk management issues in the retail sector.

The event will be hosted by Let’s Talk Credit, Experian and AON Credit Insurance Brokers, from 9.30am-2pm.

 

BHETA Credit Forums are open to credit control and finance professionals. The agenda includes current trading climate, specific retail accounts and how they are performing against trading terms; topical issues such as corporate purchases and reinvestment; as well as a general overview of the retail sector. 

BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones commented, “In the current financial climate, many businesses need help managing their credit risk. Our forum brings together industry experts and members to gain a shared understanding of the current market and customer challenges, with the objective of finding effective solutions.  The turnout for these events just rises all the time and the atmosphere is always friendly, collaborative and positive.”

In addition to regular round table discussions and updates, this event includes a presentation entitled ‘What’s in Store for the Retail Sector in 2020 and beyond?’ from credit insurance underwriter, Euler Hermes.  Attendees are also invited to submit their own topics for discussion to brent.cumming@letstalkcredit.co.uk by Friday 13 March.  

BHETA members who have not previously been to a Credit Forum are invited free of charge on the first occasion, while a full Credit Forum membership costs £350 per annum for the three sessions.

Richard Booker, Director of Creative Products Ltd commented: “BHETA Credit Forums are extremely informative. It’s helpful to discuss issues around supplier payments and as a business that is continuing to grow, the relaxed atmosphere and openness of discussion is very valuable.”

With all the extra social distancing measures retailers have been forced to put in place, floor planning, product positioning, creative merchandising and POS displays are more crucial than ever.
But which of the following product categories do you feel are the most challenging to merchandise?
