Boosted by a positive outlook among both consumers and retailers, the retail markets are optimistic. Most expansion managers have forecast increasing sales and more stores. Will optimism continue in 2019?

While focus was centered on the threat posed by e-commerce to brick-and-mortar real estate in the first decade, the industry is now aggressively addressing the specific issue of how to make destinations more attractive in order to attract customers to stores.

The 11th German Retail Real Estate Summit 2019 will, therefore, take place under the “From shopping destination to experience destination: Retail locations reinvent themselves” motto and will deal with all facets related to the interface between the retail and real estate industries.

The event is scheduled to take place from March 20 to 21, 2019 at the Van der Valk Airporthotel Düsseldorf (photo).
