Speakers.

Against an overall theme of ‘connected people & places’, we’ll be tackling the biggest trends disrupting and redefining retail property and placemaking by examining, debating and being inspired by leading influencers from our own, and wider industries, both from the UK and internationally.

Once again expect government ministers, council leaders, CEOs and other leading thinkers. Just some of our cross-sector experts set to guide us through this year’s hot topic debates. More to come!
