Retailers that have lived to see 2021 will remember 2020 as the worst year the high street has had in the last 25 years with just short of 180,000 retail job losses.
COVID-19 is exacerbating the divide between online retailers and the legacy of the “bricks and mortar” businesses who have struggled to establish digital routes to market.
So, what will 2021 bring for one of the hardest hit sectors during the COVID crisis?
Join us on Friday 29 January when James Ashton, a leading financial journalist, will chair a discussion between a panel of retail sector experts.
The panellists will assess the impact and way forward for the high street, reflecting on the latest ONS data from December’s Christmas trading results as well as exploring:
• the future of the high street;
• optimal business models; and
• key considerations and strategic options for retailers to weather the storm in 2021.
Our chair, James Ashton, is a financial journalist, writer, speaker and thought leader. He was City Editor at The Sunday Times and Executive Editor at the Evening Standard and a series of independent titles before that. He has been on the front-row seat for many of the biggest economic and corporate stories of recent times and today writes regularly for several national newspapers including the Sunday Telegraph and The Times.
Promising to be an insightful webinar, we look forward to welcoming you.
