TMA West Midlands would be delighted if you could join them at their first event in 2019, taking place on 23rd January.


With mixed Christmas trading results punctuating a turbulent time for the UK retail sector, as it continues to evolve amidst long term structural changes and several economic pressure points, join us for a brief overview of 2018; analysis of some key current themes; and our thoughts on what lies ahead…


We are excited to be joined by Tim Bateson from KPMG, William de Laszlo from Agathos Management and Nick Hammond from Colliers International for some short presentations and what will no doubt be a lively panel discussion, moderated by Peter Brewer, Partner at Clarke Willmott and TMA Board Member.


As always, refreshments will be provided with time for networking before and after.
