Join us, as we present and debate long-term trends including demographic changes, development of technology, and growing role of sustainability, ethical business, equality and rebalancing of power, and what this can mean for the UK economy and your business.
2019 is already zipping by and two years after the EU referendum, and barely a few months before the day when the UK is to leave the EU community, we do not seem to be any the wiser. While economists try to predict the consequences of whatever deal we will end up with, the prolonged period of uncertainty has already impacted the retail industry. Lower business and consumer confidence, inflation exceeding wage growth, lower consumer spending and higher outsourcing costs have added to the escalating problems in the retail sector.
How can we explain these changes to the industry and what will this mean for the future? This will mean moving beyond the present and viewing larger, macros trends that underlie changes that will and have radically altered retail’s fate. Whilst we can look at Brexit and attempt to extrapolate its economic consequences, retail will continue to experience profound changes which will result in a complete transformation of the retail environment.
So, it’s still a mixed picture for what 2019 and beyond holds for our wonderful world of retail property and placemaking and, whilst we don’t have all the answers, we will have interesting debate, thoughts and predictions. After a hugely successful and sold-out session in London, we’re delighted to bring our Question Time style seminar to the North to find out the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us.
