Following 28 years of hosting the Asian Trader Awards, promoting excellence across the independent retail sector, Asian Media & Marketing Group will host a conference for independent retailers, wholesalers, suppliers and politicians.
The Asian Trader Conference will take place on 22 November at the Westminster Park Plaza, London, the same day and venue as the Asian Trader Awards.
At the conference, the issues that are most pressing for independent retailers will be discussed. It will provide a platform for the independent sector to raise their concerns in front of the politicians whose decisions affect their businesses.
The independent retail sector is populated by the heroes of the high street who work long anti-social hours seven days a week to bring communities the products and services they rely on.
These retailers need the support of politicians to help them survive and thrive in a challenging and competitive environment.
A top quality line-up of speakers will cover a variety of topics including legislation, crime, business rates, parking and the living wage. The conference aims to both inspire the grocery industry and challenge the politicians.
The highlight of the year for the independent retailing industry, the Asian Trader Awards gather the key players to recognise and reward the very best of independent retailing.
