On 16 February in Madrid, do not miss the chance to join the retail event of the year on how top trends are disrupting the industry and how professionals can take advantage of new challenges and opportunities.
The conference is aimed at providing all real estate and construction practitioners interested in the retail sector with a comprehensive overview on matters ranging from Valuation to Project Management, from Legislation to Investment, from Facilities Management to Demographics.
In a relaxed environment in Madrid, a city that saw record investment in retail in 2016, the conference will gather high-level speakers from the European retail, real estate and construction sectors in a panel discussion moderated by Maarten Vermeulen FRICS, RICS Regional Managing Director for Europe, and Eduardo Fernandez-Cuesta FRICS, Chair of the RICS Board in Spain. The event will feature Leon Goldwater, CEO of We Are Pop Up, the world’s leading marketplace and booking platform for temporary space, as keynote speaker.
Eulalia Pensado, Manager, Iberia commented "Retail is, without a doubt, going to be one of the sectors most affected by the 2.0 revolution. In some markets, department stores are beginning to languish while the “virtual department stores” such as Amazon power ahead. Continental Europe has an interesting mix of high streets and shopping centres, all of which will be affected by the new developments. Practitioners in retail need to be aware of not only what is already here, but also what is coming next. This conference brings together the disruptors, the studious and the traditional operators to provide the market with the necessary insight".
