Bisnow's Big Retail South Event

Retail- a sector that generated $4.9 trillion worth of domestic sales in 2015- has always been a strong demand-driver in real estate. Despite this, the rise of online shopping has stymied what could be even stronger growth. The retail industry has witnessed unprecedented growth but has also been forced to adopt new strategies with the shift towards e-commerce, which accounts for more than 10% of all new leases of industrial real estate in the U.S. and 40% of big-box demand.

We will be taking an honest dive into the industry and covering key themes that the retail industry is seeing today. Who are anchors of the future? What is the retail experience? How do construction & design impact the success of a retailer? What is the key to securing financing in the downturn? Acquisitions and dispositions in trying time? What are REIT leaders advising for investing in the current state of retail?

Join Bisnow at our Bisnow’s Big Retail South Event for a full day stocked with hard-hitting content from some of the nation's top retail execs. Don't miss the key players discussing these trends and more!
