Hospice UK Retail Conference 2019

Join us on 11 April 2019 for our annual Retail Conference: 'The Theatre and Drama of Hospice Retail'.

Register nowHospices derive on average 6% of their income from shop profits, with gross income reported by independent hospice shops as £263m for the year ending March 2017.

However with rising costs, just like other areas of income generation, hospice retail needs to be constantly reviewing operations and looking for new sources of income as the traditional high-street crumbles around them.

With plenary sessions ranging from how Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland use their shops to engage the community in addition to raising funds, looking after the mental health of your staff from Steve O'Neil of MIND, and an update the current state of Textile recycling, this is a must attend event. 

The one-day conference will explore, provoke and inspire hospice retailers in equal measure. In a world of ‘vanilla’ retail how can hospice retail create theatre and drama to attract and retain custom? Aimed at Heads of Retail, Directors of Income Generation and CEO’s if retail is your responsibility then this conference is for you.
