The event, aimed specifically at independent retailers and suppliers who serve the independent trade, will feature a number of high-calibre speakers who will explore the most current trends for creating a sustainable future for retail businesses.

BIRA says that collaboration with other retailers to create 'destinations' for shoppers will be key to underpinning businesses for the future, along with the exploration of new digital technologies and embracing them within a bricks-and-mortar environment.

The association's National Conference and Awards Dinner will be held at the Chateau Impney in Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire on Wednesday May 11 2016.

"With so many developments within retail we know the importance of making sure our members are as fully informed as they need to be, to face the challenges and opportunities that this new age of retail creates," said BIRA CEO Alan Hawkins.

"Our conference is put on purely to support our members, whether they are an established retailer, a new start-up or an associate partner. It will offer a good value, informative and enjoyable day with practical content to take away and use.

"With plenty of time to share common ground with peers and to listen and learn, we know our guests won't be disappointed."
