The popular half-day conference on Thursday 12 September will take the pulse of this fast-changing sector, from bricks to clicks, booming ecommerce, and the role of North West shopping centres and High Streets in the rebirth of retail.

With the rapid retraction of household names, replaced with online brands who occupy sheds rather than shops; retail is in a state of flux. Join us to debate its future, and learn how the property sector can be on the front foot with ever-changing trends and innovative uses of technology.
