Commercial Credit & Collections Conference

Thursday 4th July

Met Hotel, Leeds

The return of the in-person Commercial Credit & Collections Conference series will take place on Thursday 4th July at the Met Hotel in Leeds. The event was first launched in 2019 and has been a virtual event in recent years. The Commercial Credit & Collections Conference series focuses on the latest updates in credit management and insolvency.

The next edition of the conference will provide Credit Managers and FDs with access to credit management and insolvency-related advice. The  Commercial Credit & Collections conferences are a platform to learn more about new industry services, products, the latest technology and best practice.

About: This event seeks to create an engaging environment with the aim of enabling all participants to learn about forthcoming technological innovations and industry developments within commercial credit management. Lenders, creditors and collections specialists will discuss, debate and dissect regulatory and thematic business challenges whilst discussing the benefits of technological innovation.
Format: The conference is slightly different from the traditional webinar set-up with the event focused upon a series of panel sessions with no individual sales pitch presentations. 
This event will be free to attend for commercial credit and collections professionals but where possible we will limit the number of suppliers who view the event. Chosen sponsors will also be given extra access and options at the event
