On Wednesday 14 November 2018, the Yorkshire board of the TMA invites you to join us for some insightful discussion on distress in the retail sector.
Stephen Springham (Head of Retail Research for Knight Frank) is coming up from London to provide us with the benefit of his extensive experience in the sector (including the impact of the recent spate of CVAs and administration on the future of the property market in the retail sector).
Womble Bond Dickinson will also be on hand to share some practical tips from their recent experiences advising various concessionaires and suppliers into a number of the failed retailers.
To top it all off, there will be the customary drinks and canapes to follow.
The event is open to all TMA members and free of charge to guests of sponsoring organisations.
We hope to see you on the evening.
