Direct Commerce Association (DCA) was founded in 2004 by retail business owners who were keen to establish a forum for sharing and exchanging expertise and insight. Amongst the founding businesses were Boden, Charles Tyrwhitt, Hotel Chocolat, and Scotts of Stow – with their directors committed to developing the membership and to delivering the kind of support that their businesses and others could mutually benefit from.

Now, the DCA actively supports many member companies in every way it can. From the recommendation of known, quality suppliers in the UK and overseas; referral of legal issues to DCA’s legal advisors, to the provision of quality training workshops and white papers spanning many key topics. DCA also facilitates a series of quality regional and national events each year which enable members to network, gain inspiration, update skills and share insight. DCA’s role is to consistently ensure that every member company’s executives have access to the support and information needed to enable them to progress and make informed decisions.
