The Brighton City Centre Business Forum is staging an important event for retailers at the Dome on 27 April. The event will equip retailers with the know-how to transform their businesses so that they save time, money and energy and even when traffic is slow still make more profit.
Very few of Brighton’s independent retailers are using modern technology to control stocks and sales. Even fewer have the expertise to make calculated sales forecasts with any degree of accuracy.
This event, which is sponsored by Sussex Enterprise, will open up a range of options that are now available to small traders. Soozie Campbell, city centre manager and event organiser says, “It is vitally important that small traders up-skill because they are the heart and soul of Brighton’s retail offer. The larger multiples have been benefiting from technology for many years and as a result they present a threat to smaller traders and therefore to the character of Brighton. The good news is that technology is now so cheap that even the small guys can afford it. I know of one retailer who recovered the cost of his new system in matter of months simply by getting his pricing right.”
The event will showcase affordable Electronic Point of Sale systems, Payment Systems and Card Technology as well as Internet and Broadband systems. The show is free and a free lunch is available to all those who book in advance. There will also be a complimentary drinks reception in the evening.
