The 2022 event will also include several features, such as Indie Matters Business Advice Clinics which will give retailers the opportunity to sit down with an industry expert in a one-to-one session for advice on marketing, social media, sales strategy, and financial planning.

The Retail Matters programme has been conceived to support retailers in all aspects of running a successful business through live talks with leading industry professionals and successful peers. With topics such as creative content strategy, sales techniques for independent retailers, how to sell on Instagram, and mastering PR. The full programme is here.
