Our speakers will share their forecasts and expertise and answer your questions at the event from 1pm to 2pm.

Homegrown companies are navigating new trade deals, working through lockdown regulations and continuing to monitor and adapt to the ever-changing dynamic of the high street and the UK’s retail offering.

How can landlords and local authorities continue to support independent businesses – so often the lifeblood of their communities – and how can businesses combine a compelling physical and eye-catching online presence to maximise on the customer experience?

With a spotlight on the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, our expert panel will discuss the future balance of online vs. physical stores, the increasing need for high-quality and well-located industrial space, the outlook for destination shopping centres, and the importance of independent business to local and national economies.
