RETAIL

Evolving London’s offer for changing consumer appetite

© Agnese Sanvito

Retail is in a time of flux. With growing rents, online retailing, and an emphasis on experiential visits rather than standard shop floors, linked with growing hospitality and restaurant sectors as London becomes a destination for food tourism, London’s retail community is evolving.

What is the future for this sector? What do we need for our world-famous markets, high streets, town centres, shopping centres and independent shopping areas to remain competitive? How should the market respond to fears of Brexit impacting our position as a shopping destination? How can we make best use of our high streets and shopping centres?

This year-round programme investigates how London is adapting to retain its title as a world-leading shopping city and the innovative responses underway. 

Key themes

  • Innovative experiences: the impact of technology and lifestyle change
  • City markets - dealing with greater demand on resources and land
  • Retail at stations - 'the only part of retail that’s growing' 
  • Modernising shopping centres and their impact on wide-scale development
