Ahead of the next month's Think Indie, Drink Indie event is conducting a survey to help gauge the overall health of the independent sector.

The results of the survey will be shared on July 12 at the launch of Harpers' new independent merchants initiative Think Indie, Drink Indie, along with our 50 Best Indies Awards.

The survey is brief and should take less than five minutes to complete.

To take the survey please click here.

The Think Indie, Drink Indie event is open to all independent merchants, and promises to be a lively, informative yet relaxed event, designed around your businesses needs and interests.

The tasting will be hosted at M Threadneedle Street restaurant.

There will be an open format tasting all day that will run from 10 am - 5 pm with breakout seminars and masterclasses available. The 'building your business' discussion forum will begin at 10.30 am and the 'selling your independence' discussion forum is set to begin at 2.30 pm.

The panel-led debates topping and tailing the symposium will respectively allow attendees to take away some real value and insight drawn from some of the best in the business.

We are also currently cooking up the content for our two Masterclasses, which will focus on specific drink categories, led by a business-focused expert on each area, delivering much more than the usual sniff, swirl and spit format.

The UK's 50 Best Indies

With our 100-strong country-wide judging academy poised to return their votes soon, Think Indie, Drink Indie will also be the launch pad for Harpers' new 50 Best Indies Awards, designed to recognise and honour those independent merchants that have done the most to drive forward quality and innovation in the retail of wines, beers and spirits.

The results of the 50 Best Indies will be announced towards the end of the day at the symposium.
