BMF’s Budapest conference sells out in record time

Published:  26 August, 2016

The BMF All Industry Conference, which takes place in Budapest in June 2017, has already sold out.

The event has attracted 14% more merchant delegates compared to the last BMF All Industry Conference in 2015. 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 will attend the BMF All Industry conference for the first time in 15 years.

BMF managing director John Newcomb said: “We believe this is the fastest that the conference has ever sold out and reflects both the value it offers and the high esteem in which it is held by the industry. 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.”

Details of the first speakers will be announced in September and regular updates will be published on the conference website.
