Also at the meeting will be Mark Alexander, director of BHETA member company, Benchmark Retail Services.

James Gower, newly appointed event director for Interbuild 08 will outline plans for working with BHETA at this year's show in a joint collaboration.

The two parties have joined forces to offer a special rate to BHETA members who wish to exhibit at the NEC-based show, which takes place from October 26 to 30.
