For the 2018 show, the Schoolwear Association sponsored seminars during Sunday and Monday in the Diamond Suite. The SA hopes the seminars will be an exciting new addition to the show and give more reason to visit by raising awareness and challenging the status quo with some interesting and practical ideas.
Each seminar is approximately 25 minutes in duration.
Tendering to Win
This Seminar deals with the growing requirement of Schools and Academy Trusts for their suppliers to Tender and how to make sure Schoolwear Specialists give themselves the best chance to win and ensure their business competes in an ever more challenging market.
The Seminar was presented by Klick Business Solutions, who have worked with a number of Schoolwear Retailers helping them to win Tenders.
Sustainability & School Uniform
This Seminar focusses on the growing awareness of the various environmental issues in the world, plastic being the current hot topic, but there are many other elements. Hopefully it will both raise awareness and challenge the status quo, putting some interesting and practical ideas into the market. Sustainability and what happens at end of life with textile products, will eventually become part of everyone’s thinking, so it’s important that our market is ahead of the curve.
The Seminar has been developed by Oakdene Hollins who specialise in finding solutions in this subject and was presented by Kathryn Shuttleworth, the Managing Director of David Luke.
