The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is holding its next member forum on 15 January, featuring Ian Preedy, group commercial director of Travis Perkins.

Mr Preedy is to share with BHETA members all the latest plans and developments from Travis Perkins in a session reflecting the crossover between DIY and traditional builders’ merchant business.

The forum agenda will also include presentations from several other speakers addressing the DIY and builders’ merchant sectors.

The event will be held in the Warwickshire Suite at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground with a start time of 9.30am for registration and coffee.

Peter Stone, home improvement sector director of BHETA, said: “This will be a big occasion for members with a very stimulating agenda covering the whole spectrum of light and heavy side DIY, merchanting and garden. Anyone not already booked in should contact myself or member services as soon as possible.”
