WLI Presents: The Future of Retail- A Panel Discussion
AN EXPERT PANEL’S INSIGHT ON THE FUTURE OF RETAIL:
THE CHANGING PATTERNS IN CONSUMER BEHAVIOR AND THE IMPACT ON REAL ESTATE
Consumer demand and behavior patterns are the driving forces behind shifts in the retail landscape. In an ever-evolving competitive environment, retailers and landlords must understand customer decision-making triggers and find solutions to address them.
How do large retailers and shopping centers curate an engaging experience for their customers? What are communities doing to ensure that these changes have a positive effect on street character? And above all, what are we doing to understand consumer behavior patterns so we can factor them into our day to day real estate decisions?
Join ULI New York’s Women’s Leadership Initiative for a panel discussion and networking opportunity focused on the Future of Retail: The Changing Patterns in Consumer Behavior and the Impact on Real Estate. Industry experts will share their insights on how to identify, understand and utilize consumer behavior patterns, and factor them into the decisions we make as real estate owners and operators.
