[Videos] Retail opinion and insights from our expert Retail & Leisure Summit Panel

29 March 2017 by Noelle Ghanem

At our 15th Retail and Leisure Summit we interviewed some of the experts from our panel who shared with us their opinions on the current and future state of retail, as well as sharing valuable insights on what challenges they foresaw for occupiers and investors.

In the videos below, Darren Williams (International Retail Director, T2), Jat Sahota (Head of Commercial (Retail), Land Securities), Sophie Michael (Head of Retail and Audit Partner, BDO LLP) and Oliver Chamberlain (Partner (Real Estate), Hogan Lovells LLP) give their answers to some questions we put to them.

Darren Williams - International Retail Director, T2  

• How do you see the relationship between online and bricks and mortar retail evolving over the coming years?

• Do you think that the key to creating experiences for consumers is connected to locations of stores? 

• Were there any surprises for you in LDC's report on retail and leisure trends in 2016?
