CCR, or Credits Collections and Risk magazine is the UK’s most read publication regarding the credit industry. Since 2008 and the dawn of the recession, credit and debt have been hotly debated subjects throughout the media. CCR has regularly reported every month on the changes made to the industry as it goes through an extended period of upheaval. The magazine presents information to not just the credit industry but to customers as well, acknowledging any queries that they might have with regards to debt and how to manage it. Each year, CCR also presents a one day conference, entitled CCR-Interactive and many large names in credit make an appearance to network and expand their client base.
With the success of the CCR-Interactive event growing each year, then it has been important for CCR to secure funding from outside sources. They recently announced a new sponsor of the event to be Wescot, the largest debt recovery company in Britain. Based in Glasgow, Hull and Saltcoats the debt management agency employs over 650 people who annually process 5 million different accounts. It is hoped by the organisers of CCR-Interactive that the company’s involvement will provide them with two things, firstly the means to host such an important event, but also the prestige of Wescot will no doubt attract even more people to attend CCR-Interactive.
At the event, attendees can expect amongst other things a brilliant opportunity to socialise and network. The CCR-Interactive attracts many different businesses and some of which would not ordinarily correspond in such a neutral and positive environment. Individuals, not affiliated with a company will enjoy being able to approach many different businesses in one go, getting a frank view of what each company could offer them.
To end the day, CCR and their sponsor will host a dinner and awards ceremony. The CCR awards are some of the highest accolades that any company in the credit industry can hope to achieve and they are attended by hundreds of people. This is the perfect place for a customer driven company like Wescot to showcase their capabilities as a sponsor and highlight the company’s strengths in general.
