British Association For Fair Trade Shops
BAFTS Annual Conference and AGM
The 2013 Annual Conference and AGM is taking place in Burntisland Fife on Sunday 19th and Monday 20th May. The Board has worked very hard to bring members a set of interesting workshops, a speaker, a range of importers who are showcasing on one of both days, and is really looking forward to seeing members who are able to travel up and meet us there.
We wish everyone a safe journey, happy networking, and that they find the weekend very beneficial on many levels. Here is an image to whet your appetite!
