Meeting Format


There are 4 IT Distributers & Resellers Credit Forum meetings a year. Each of one-day duration, held at the Stratford Manor Hotel,  Stratford Upon Avon

Meeting Format

The IT Distributors & Resellers Credit Forum meetings start at 09.30 and run through to 15.00 with breaks. Refreshments & lunch are provided. There is an optional group dinner at the hotel the preceding evening.

Challenging & instructive agendas

The IT Distributors & Resellers Credit Forum members have significant input into meeting agendas in order to ensure that sessions are relevant and cover key areas of common interest.

Interactive delivery

Sessions are delivered through workshops and discussions rather than lecture-style presentations.

We source and invite knowledgeable subject experts in order to ensure that content is of the highest standard.
