Details

Retail is currently reinventing urban spaces, with city centres experiencing the greatest transformation since the invention of cars. We’re just not quite prepared for the delivery economy and its delivery vehicles, couriers, robots and drones. Urban production, meanwhile, is increasingly becoming feasible again.

Convenience and pop-ups are increasingly merging with innovative sustainability and reselling ideas as the number of people looking to consume less at a better quality grows. Resale is set to become the new sales. As part of what mix of offerings will retail be attractive and profitable?

The 70th International Retail Summit will address the following questions, among others:

• City centres: from shopping area to representational area?
• Prestige constructions vs. container shops: is the rise of small formats unstoppable?
• On- or offline, it’s all the same to the customer. When will retailers follow suit?
• A four-minute last mile? Getting a grip on delivery
• Urban life needs retail, and shopping needs passers-by. Or do they?
• Centre vs. periphery: is production returning to cities?
• Where can I actually meet my customers today?
