The event is run by Off Licence News and sister title Harpers Wine & Spirit, which have been dedicated to championing the independent sector since the 19th century.
We are constantly working on new ways to help it thrive and we will be hosting a range of panel discussions and masterclasses tomorrow to help retailers grow their businesses, attract more shoppers and ultimately boost sales and grow the sector.
A range of marketing experts will be on hand to offer tips on how to grow your reach online and drive footfall to your bricks and mortar store, while leading independents will share their advice on how to thrive.
We will also count down the UK's 50 Best Indies, as voted by members of our nationwide academy.
