Top 50 Indies Dinner 2017

Top 50 Indies Dinner 2017

This year’s Top Indies Dinner brought together the industry’s largest operators for it’s 11th year. Hosted at Wotton House, an idyllic country estate in the heart of the Surrey hills, oil company executives and key suppliers networked with some of the biggest names in the retail sector.

Guests were treated to an evening of fine dining followed by an insightful and entertaining speech from the BBC’s Deputy Political Editor, John Pienaar, whose musings on current key political figures and the state of politics today opened an eye or two!

The pinnacle of the evening was of course the unveiling of the new list of the Top 50 Independent Retailers for 2017.
