The CSA’s UKCCC Shortlisted as Conference of the Year

By CreditMan Friday, June 23, 2017

UK Credit & Collections Conference (UKCCC), the Credit Services Association's 2016 flagship event, has been shortlisted for Conference of the Year by the Trade Association Forum (TAF) in its Best Practice Awards 2017.

The award judges were looking for an outstanding event which featured ‘particularly relevant and informative content specific to the audience’, as well as utilising ‘innovative technology’ and which received ‘exceptional attendee feedback’. The TAF’s Events and Sponsorship Manager described UKCCC as ‘inspiring’.

The achievement follows the positive feedback received from delegates for last year’s conference and comes as details for UKCCC 2017 are gradually being released. This year’s conference will take place on 13 & 14 September 2017 at Hilton London Wembley. “We are very pleased to see this recognition for the hard work that went into UKCCC 2016,” says Colleen Magee, Head of Marketing and Events for the CSA. “But we are not resting on our laurels.

“The theme for 2017 will be one of innovation and technology. We will be looking at best practice in mitigating risk in an environment where the pace of change and developments in technology is ever-increasing,” she explains. “This will be complemented with a focus on compliance. We’ve secured keynote speakers from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).”

The event will give attendees access to industry insight from expert speakers across an extensive agenda, as well as offering key opportunities for credit and collection professionals to network.

The deadline for UKCCC early bird bookings, which give a 25% saving on Network Evening, Conference Day and Gala Dinner & Awards tickets, has been extended until Thursday 15 June 2017. To book your place, you can visit www.ukccc.csa-uk.com or email CSA Head of Sales, Ruth Greaves, Ruth.greaves@csa-uk.com for further information.

TAF’s Best Practice Award winners will be announced in July.
