What is MasterMerchant?
MasterMerchant is a team competition open to all BMF Members, whether you are a supplier, merchant, distributor or service member. It’s demanding, provides great networking opportunities for members, helps build relationships between not just companies but individuals too – and it's great fun as well!
It involves a series of mental and physical problem-solving exercises such as code breaking, map reading, logic problems, climbing/abseiling, ghyll walking, canoeing, clue trails and other tasks designed to test your creativity, leadership skills and improve channels of communication.
Who is eligible to enter?
A team consists of any 4 people - male, female, counter staff through to managing directors! Teams can represent a whole company, a regional, area or branch.
The weekend event begins as teams arrive on Friday evening when each team is given their ‘starter pack’ and a briefing. Late arrivals are catered for where possible. The weekend finishes after lunch on Sunday with results and prizes
To enter a team of 4 the cost is £1200. That's just £300 per person. This includes accommodation (2 nights), all meals, instructors and equipment.
The cost excludes transport to and from the Lake District which should be organised by each individual team.
