Brands & Retail Winter 24 conference dated

Brands & Retail has confirmed the date of its Winter 2024 conference, which will take place on 7 February at the Millennium Point Conference Centre in Birmingham.

Mattel, Retail Monster and BBC Studios have confirmed their 15-minute brand slots, with more brands also reserving the limited one-day event presentation spaces.

There will also be an evening networking party in the venue from 5pm to 8pm with themed entertainment, drinks and canapés.

“The feedback we received for the new venue at Millennium Point from the brands and attendees at our summer 23 conference was fantastic,” commented Ryan Beaird, ceo at Brands Retail Conferences. “Helping to promote regional growth, helping reduce carbon footprint and with so many retailers and licensees HQ’s in the midlands and the north it makes sense again to hold the Winter 24 conference in Birmingham.

“I am also delighted BBC Studios will be taking part for the first time alongside Retail Monster and Mattel. At the time of press I have around five other brands signing the paperwork as we speak so we, in theory, only have about ten slots left.

“Registration for our VIP audience will start around late November and with the extra capacity we will see more key senior executives and ceos coming from the retail and manufacturing industry in the UK.”
