The LDC Accelerator kicks off 2021 with its first digital gathering for big thinkers, bringing you a live discussion on the state of retail.

What will the post covid look like for independent brands across online and offline retail?

Retail has certainly been through its highs and lows, this year more than most with the effects of a global pandemic shutting down high streets worldwide.

Uniting independent brands with the movers, shakers and trailblazers of the global fashion industry to provide an insight into the future of retail.

Led by the founder and CEO of Lone Design Club, Rebecca Morter, we will be interviewing thought leaders, industry experts and established independent brands for a roundtable discussion. This conversation will offer support to independent brands of all sizes, share a vision on the retail renaissance and put into action strategies for the coming year.

These conversations are more relevant, necessary and valuable now more than ever before as we celebrate and recognise the potential for growing small independent businesses.

This will be an opportunity for you to voice your thoughts and opinions and have your questions answered. To network with consultants and experts whose main aims are building businesses to thrive. If you have anything you would like to raise, please let us know in advance in order to add it to the agenda. If you have any comments or questions, please send these to

  • 4pm: Introductions to our speakers
  • 4.20pm: Panel discussion
  • 5pm: Group networking break out rooms
  • 5.30pm: Q&A
