Make your mark

11 July, 2008

Entries are open for this year's Responsible Drinks Retailing Awards, run by OLN and sister magazine Morning Advertiser.

The awards recognise best practice in retail and are a great way to show off just how much you are doing to avoid selling to

The winners will be announced at an industry awards lunch at London's Landmark Hotel on Nov 11.
