Kudos Sponsors Charity Retail Conference 2021
Kudos showcases its easy-to-use EPoS & Gift Aid SignUp App technology.
Kudos was delighted to be able to support the 2021 Charity Retail Conference as headline sponsor for the first time. Around 100 charities attended from across the UK, representing organisations large and small.
Key themes of the event included sustainability and the circular economy; ecommerce and online sales; and the rise of charity shops as ‘hyper-local’ community engagement locations.
The positivity and resilience demonstrated by the charity retail sector at the event was inspirational. 2020/21 has been challenging but the charities demonstrated that adversity has been a springboard for enterprise and innovation. Creating opportunities to build back bigger and stronger than ever.
Sarah Dodd said ‘It was brilliant to be headline sponsor and to talk to so many charities about their retail ambitions. At Kudos we know how data helps with decisions at all levels so obtaining business intelligence from the retail solution was often the topic of conversation on our stand.’
Kudos showcased its easy-to-use EPoS system and demonstrated its Gift Aid SignUp App technology. Delegates were impressed with the standalone App solution that does not require the full Kudos EPoS but works on a tablet, enabling them to recruit new donors away from the till. There were also plenty of prizes to be won on the Kudos stand and many delegates came away with a prize courtesy of Kudos.
The jewel in the crown of the exhibition was the Charity Retail Awards dinner and dance. The talent and tenacity on show were awe-inspiring. To see the fill list of winners, click here.
