I2i Events Group is the Official Supporting Partner for Independent Retailer Month, which starts this Sunday, July 1st.
The group is the organiser of Autumn Fair International and Spring Fair International.
Independent Retailer Month is designed to give an additional boost to independents during challenging economic conditions.
During the annual Independent Retailer Month, store owners around the UK will display posters urging their customers to celebrate their valued local independent retailers, with the message “come inside to find out more.”
i2i Events head of marketing for the Autumn and Spring Fairs, Lorna Charlish, said: “We’re very proud to be official partners in this wonderful initiative. The vast majority of buyers who attend our shows are independent retailers, who turn up in their tens of thousands and do so much to keep this industry varied and interesting.
"Independents are renowned for their distinct product offering, personal approach and excellent customer service. We do all we can to support them.”
