Study Day Retail for Smaller Venues Edinburgh

Association for Cultural Enterprises Study Day – Retail for Smaller Venues – Edinburgh: 23 April

Good retail rests on four basic pillars of best practice: Buying, Finance, Display and Shop Floor Skills. This day will introduce smaller and less experienced venues to these concepts.

The four pillars of retail wisdom form the infrastructure for a successful operation. Once learned and put into practice, the information taken from this event will enable museum teams and volunteers to run an attractive, efficient and profitable enterprise.
