Retailers are being invited to think about innovative ways to boost their businesses at a free lunch and networking event in Bowness.
The ‘Retail Special’ business lunch, organised by South Lakeland District Council (SLDC), is being held at the Laura Ashley Hotel The Belsfield, in Bowness, on Wednesday, 11 March from 11am to 1pm.
Guest speakers will be encouraging retailers to think about everything from their shop window first impressions to their on-line offering.
Visual display trainers from York-based ‘Made You Look!’ will be offering handy hints on how to create eye-catching window and interior displays and on how retailers can raise their profile and increase sales.
There will also be a presentation from a second speaker about how retailers can complement and enhance their high street trading by using effective on-line promotions, sales and marketing.
The council’s Invest in South Lakeland economic development team holds regular free working breakfasts/lunches and networking events throughout the year across South Lakeland.
The lunch at the Belsfield is open to all South Lakeland businesses and any that may be wanting to re-locate to this area.
