iGlobal Live is pleased to present the latest in our virtual event series, 'The Future of Retail Amidst Covid-19'.

Among the last to reopen, brick & mortar retail is forecast to further embrace omni-channel solutions, while reconsidering - and perhaps redefining - customer experience post- COVID-19. How can tenants and landlords better collaborate? How will sub-sector valuations change in response to forecast consumer patterns and footfall?

Key topics include:

  • Pivoting retail-dominated projects to mixed use.
  • Helping DTC retailers gain brick-and-mortar space.
  • New revenue streams potentially more viable post-virus.
  • Tools for increasing footfall (and purchases) while decreasing crowding.
  • Post-pandemic operational practices and cost estimates.
