This means the 2019 Inspiring Independents will both recognise and celebrate the industries achievements at our lunchtime awards, as well as reflecting on and addressing today’s business challenges and opportunities at our morning conference.

The conference will feature a variety of inspiring keynotes, case studies and panel discussions exploring changing consumer behaviour, experiential retail and how to create new business opportunities in a challenging retail economy.

This will then be followed by a drinks reception and lunchtime awards ceremony and networking.

The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) has been confirmed as the headline partner for the awards part of the event.

All of this is available to retailers for just £99+VAT per person.
