    Let’s Get Physical: The Future of Retail (MEMBERS-use this form to register)

    Has the death of brick and mortar retail been greatly exaggerated? Amid the steady drumbeat of news headlines about chain store bankruptcies, closings and failing malls, it is easy to forget that over 85 percent of all retail sales still occur in physical stores. 

    With the peak holiday shopping season upon us, we have invited a distinguished panel of retail designers and developers to give us an insiders’ view on their strategies for adapting to an overbuilt retail landscape, changing consumer preferences, and the transformation of retail centers into de facto town squares. 

    From the recently opened Palisades Village to Howard Hughes to the Westside Pavilion, how is Los Angeles redefining the future of retail?

    Trends for discussion will include: the creation of compelling experiences in stores and malls to drive customer engagement; the seemingly counter-intuitive shift of retail from online to offline (“clicks to bricks,” with notable local examples including Amazon Books and the first Jennifer Meyer Jewelry stand-alone store at Palisades Village); short-term leases for pop-up stores replacing long-term leases; and malls renovated into true mixed-use developments (Westside Pavilion) with office space, entertainment, lifestyle uses, and Food, Food, Food.
