ERT’s Turning Point Live Conference returns on Monday!

The ERT Turning Point Live Conference will return on Monday (6 December) – ahead of the prestigious ERT Awards taking place that afternoon.

Once again, the Turning Point Live Conference – which is sponsored by Electrical Safety First – will cover a variety of topics to help electrical retailers strive to be the very best in everything they do!

Hosted by ERT Editor, Jack Cheeseman, the morning will feature a number of topical presentations with a focus on both the current and future market trends after what has been a tumultuous and unforgettable two years.

You will hear from industry experts – some who are returning from previous years’ Conferences – on current and future retail trends and how to move into new areas and embrace today’s rapidly-changing technology, while electrical retailers will share their stories about how they have navigated recent turbulent times and made key changes in order to secure future business success.
