What is happening to the country’s high streets? Some retailers continue their onward expansion unabated while others are struggling to survive and well known names are calling in the administrators. Queen of Shops, Mary Portas, and her review team haven’t been able to find a big enough magic wand to wave and make everything better. And even Tesco is doing less well than usual. Are struggling high streets only a problem in the UK or are their European counterparts doing any better?
The fifth British Property Federation and Local Data Company Retail Summit will take place on Tuesday 7 February 2012 and will be hosted by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer at their offices in Fleet Street.The Retail Summit will include the results of LDC’s latest high street survey, which for the first time will include comparison figures from key European centres. As usual, the results presentation will be followed by a debate on what it all means and where it’s all heading.
