AREF hosted

Retail is at a crossroads: with whispers of CVA almost a daily occurrence, consumer habits continuously changing, and the rise of ‘e-tailing’, retail must evolve if it wants to survive.

Please join the expert panelists as they share their views on the Future of Retail. 
Bringing together a diverse mix of opinions, including speakers from retail-led regeneration schemes, we shall discuss whether retail gems can still be found amongst ‘secondary’, the relevance of physical retail as we know it and the challenges facing retailers going forward.
