Heavyweight industry panel to debate at BMF Conference

The panel comprises Ron Walker, managing director of Heating Plumbing Supplies Ltd, Stephen Thompstone, former managing director of Buildbase and director of Grafton Merchanting GB, David Hebdon, operations director of independent buying group Fortis Merchants Ltd and Richard Hill, managing director of ACO Technologies plc.

Each panel member will give a short presentation before the debate is opened up to the floor with Conference host, Sharron Davies, chairing the session.

BMF managing director, John Newcomb said: “Picking up on the Conference theme, each panel member will briefly explain how they have built momentum and focus in their respective businesses. Coming hot on the heels of a General Election, the result of which is currently too close to call, they will no doubt consider the key issues that we will all have to face over the lifetime of the new government, whichever party or coalition of parties takes power.”

“This will be another unmissable session for delegates at the biggest industry Conference of the year – which is now fully booked. Every supplier package and merchant place was sold out by the end of 2014, which is a remarkable endorsement both of the BMF and of the industry’s premier event.”

The 2015 All-Industry Conference takes place in Malta from 18th-21st June 2015 at the five star Westin Dragonara Resort in St Julians Bay and will be hosted by Olympic and Commonwealth medal winner and TV presenter, Sharron Davies.
