After a storming launch in 2012, the PCR Boot Camp conference & expo returns to The Brewery, London on Wednesday May 29th.
If you didn’t attend last year – and are still to register for this summer’s event – make sure you read on and then register at www.pcrbootcamp.com.
1. Learn how to engage with your customers before they even enter your store.
The PCR Boot Camp conference will kick off with an insightful session by SEO specialist John Straw, entitled ‘How To Put Your Store on the (Google) Map. His talk will investigate how to take advantage of customers using smartphones to search for local businesses. Most importantly, Straw will show you how your store or business can beat the competition to the top slot in Google listings.
2. Find out about the latest topline retail and consumer trends, and learn how to avoid the pitfalls that even the biggest High Street chains have suffered.
The keynote speech will be presented by retail guru Stephen Robertson. Most recently the director general of the powerful and influential British Retail Consortium, Robertson has previously held senior positions at Unilever, B&Q, Kingfisher and Mars. His session will examine current retail trends and opportunities.
3. Discover new business and profit opportunities.
After a free lunch, dealers can attend a tightly focused expo, where distributors and vendors will be showcasing their latest products and services. The list of expo partners currently includes Microsoft, Entatech, Hama, Wasp, TP-LINK, KMS Components and Synaxon.
4. Attend hands-on training sessions on Microsoft’s latest products.
The afternoon will also feature a number of more focused seminars, where Partners will invite smaller numbers of dealers to attend ‘Break-Out Sessions’. During these sessions Entatech will be providing training on Microsoft products.
5. Network with your suppliers and peers over a free drink (or two).
Once the ‘serious’ part of the day is over, dealers, distributors and vendors can network during the After Show Drinks Reception over a few drinks and nibbles. And all retailers and resellers who attend will also go home with a VIP Gift Bag.
And Don’t Just Take Our Word For It...
