Following a brilliant kick off for our Holition Talks event series on the rise of virtual fashion, we are delighted to announce our next virtual event. Join innovation studio Holition and INTERLACED on 12th August for our second free webinar, where we'll look into the future of retail in 2020 and beyond.
Since the pandemic, footfall in UK High Streets, retail stores, and shopping centres plummeted to as much as 80% in April amid the lockdown.
The reality is, thousands of shops may have closed their doors for the last time when they “temporarily shut.”
Recent data shows that over 20,600 retailers are expected to have pulled their shutters down for the final time by the end of the year, a massive leap on the 4,547 that closed in 2019.
And how about e-commerce? Online retail is now 20 years old. And after two decades of experiments and digital firsts, fashion brands today face great changes in consumer behaviour — and a growing, diverse stable of competitors — just as the coronavirus epidemic turns the world upside down. What happens now?
We have invited industry experts in the world of e-commerce, marketing and physical retail to address what brands can do to adapt to the new normal and plan post-lockdown strategies.
We will cover everything, from the role of pop-ups to social commerce, emerging tech innovations within customer retail experiences, and how we expect physical retail to change in years to come.
Stay tuned for speaker announcements very soon and book your free virtual spot now.
See you there!
