What Is The Future Of Retail In Ireland?

With shops reopening this week after being closed for so long, how can retail recover in the next few months and beyond? What are the impacts of Covid-19, the trade war, climate change, fast fashion and digital disruption coupled with changing consumer values? Is the supply chain broken, are we now in the age of the artisan?

Our panel of experts will answer these and other questions about retail. How as marketers and brand owners do we respond to and thrive in this turbulent landscape?
