BHETA credit forum series grows

The Credit Forum events held by The British Home Enhancement Trade Association

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is holding its next Credit Forum on July 20 including its regular update on all current credit and risk management issues in the retail sector.

Judging from the growing number of attendees, the three per year events are steadily growing in popularity.

The Credit Forum events update any BHETA members who wish to attend on all the latest credit and risk management issues in retail trading. The Forums always start at 9.30am at Federation House, Vyse Street, Birmingham with an agenda including the current trading climate, specific retail accounts and how they are performing against trading terms as well as the general overview on the trends in the retail sector.

Aimed at credit and finance professionals, the event is co-hosted by Reynolds Trade Credit and Experian and is workshop and discussion-based.

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.

Commenting on the event, homewares sector director, Will Jones said, “Being a member of the Credit Forum brings many benefits, not least the latest information but also mutual support and shared experiences. As with all BHETA events, the networking opportunity always proves valuable as well.”

Margaret Goddard of QEP added, “The Credit Forums can give you much more than just discussing accounts around the table.

They give you the opportunity to listen to how others have dealt with certain situations and the sharing of information is invaluable. I was very impressed that we had two speakers and I learnt a lot from them regarding recent changes in the law.”

BHETA members interested in attending should contact Dawn Clarke in the Member Services Team on 0121 237 1130 or email at
