Shopping centres launch Dragons' Den-style competition

Shopping centre body Revo has launched a contest to find up-and-coming retail businesses.

Hatch by Revo is backed by property firms including Landsec, Hammerson, Westfield, M&G Real Estate, Harcourt and Ellandi.

Together with the British Independent Retailers Association, they will run a competition offering free space and expert marketing advice in their retail places to up-and-coming retail businesses.

The competition will run for two months, and winners will be announced in May.

The exact offer varies from location to location, but all winners will benefit from free rent, business rates and service charges. They will also receive professional marketing and business support to help promote their concept, and a year’s free Bira membership.

Current locations include Westfield Stratford City in London, St David’s Dewi Sant in Cardiff, Silverburn in Glasgow, The Galleries in Tyne & Wear, Parkway Shopping Centre in Limerick, Republic of Ireland and Bloomfields in County Down, Northern Ireland.
