A WINCHESTER business is to launch its annual Business Outlook event next week.

Christie and Co, based at Staple Gardens, will host the event at 8am on Friday at the Holiday Inn in Winchester, aiming to provide a candid review of performances throughout 2013.

The company has published average price indices annually since the 1970s relating to hospitality, leisure, care, retail and medical markets in the south region.

The launch also aims to provide information on sector trends and prospects as well as market predictions for the forthcoming year.
