Published on: 29/01/2019
This workshop provided the opportunity for local authorities to learn about the European Commission's 'Guide for revitalising and modernising the small retail sector'.
Event date: 12/02/2019
Location: Brussels, Belgium

The workshops gave participants the chance to learn first-hand from towns and cities that have successfully implemented initiatives, and the challenges they overcame.

Participants were able to pick up practical tips, to learn about sources of finance, and to network. This will enable them to prepare solutions or create a successful local retail strategy for their small retailers.

The agenda, presentations and link to the recording of the workshop are available below. 

Workshops also took place in Madrid (14 March 2019), Vienna (4 April 2019) and Bucharest (16 May 2019).

The workshops were part of the Single Market Forum 2018/2019.
