Retail Jeweller has re-launched its annual Inspiring Independents event to include business boosting content aimed at independents alongside the annual awards format.
As part of the changes, for the first time, independent retail businesses will be able to enter the awards in five categories as well as nominating themselves or their fellow retailers for inclusion in the annual list of the top 100 independent businesses.
However, the biggest change comes in the form of an additional morning conference event available to all attendees, centred around the theme of Boosting Your Business and aimed at independent retailers.
The unique event will recognise and celebrate the industries achievements at our lunchtime awards, and also reflect on and address today’s 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.
The enterable awards categories for this year, are as follows:
- · Best customer experience
- · Best new independent retailer
- · Best use of visual merchandising and store design
- · Independent marketing campaign of the year
- · Supplier of the year to the independent jewellery/watch sector
