Transforming & Repurposing Retail Developments & Town Centres; Sponsored by DAC Beachcroft

Monday, 5th October 2020 0945hrs – 1130hrs

This event is set to look at the ever-changing retail environment and how behavioural shifts and Covid-19 will bring further change to towns centres.

There’s a number of challenges facing the physical retail landscape – and these are set to bring major changes to high streets, town centres and the whole retail environment.

In this webinar a number of major developers and retail asset owners including RivingtonHark and Ellandi will share their strategic approach to tackling the challenges, and highlighting the potential opportunities and the new routes and avenues they’re potentially taking for future projects.

This event will run in a similar manner to all of our physical events – with short presentations from several key speakers and opportunities for live Q&A and interaction.

Speakers for this event include:

Mark Williams,
Executive Director
Holly Russell-Kennedy,
Head of Future Places Team
Christopher Stanwell,
Head of Planning
