Cathie Osborne, founder and owner of Retaissance, said: “We’re very excited to launch our second live event and have already secured a varied selection of buyers on board from previous success in 2020, and new partners joining to support the recovering retail sector.

“With their support, we’ve been able to build a roster that represents the broad, diverse range of industries that makeup retail across Europe.

“Last year during the pandemic, hundreds of thousands of pounds of deals were made.

“We want to help continue that growth of revenue and give new brands the opportunity to reach out to new markets.”

“This will be a brilliant opportunity for independent brands to create new sales opportunities, gather product feedback, network and approach new markets.

“We’ve had a lot of interest in the event so far, so be sure to get in touch and book your free ticket to secure your meetings.”
