Mobility bosses are being offered assistance on GDPR compliance after new legislation was introduced in May causing a headache for some small businesses which have been trying to balance staff’s time on the shop-floor with readying their firms for the new law.
The free training is being offered as part of Trade Days’ centralised seminar theatre it is bringing to the industry show this year.
As well as help with GDPR compliance, the theatre will offer short courses from experts on other things that can assist retailers in running their business.
In addition to educational courses, the show’s competitions and product giveaways have been upgraded.
All attending delegates will automatically be entered for a prize draw to win exclusive product prizes.
Prizes from Pride and other exhibitors total more than £20,000 in worth. Available prizes include a Cabin Car from Scooterpac, two Raptor Scooters from Pride, a Quickie Q100 powerchair from Sunrise Medical and New Lithilite car boot scooter form Motion Healthcare.
Trade Days has promised a much-improved show this year and has introduced live auctions for mobility equipment to give dealers the opportunity to purchase samples, end-of-line or discontinued stock held back by manufactures.
The exhibition, on 7-8 October at the NEC in Birmingham, promises ‘Dealer Days’, where retailers are invited to learn about manufacturers’ new products in a private environment, including Sunrise Medical.
On the first evening of Trade Days, the AMP Awards will take place, in association with Sunrise Medical. The Awards will honour mobility dealers and celebrate their achievements over the last 12 months.
The evening will begin at 7pm with a glittering drinks reception preceding the presentation of awards to the country’s finest mobility dealers. Complimentary food and drinks will flow throughout the night and tickets are free for dealers who have registered to attend.
