Event details

Hosted by Professor Clare Brindley, Dr Carley Foster, Dr Lynn Oxborrow, and Dr Guja Armannsdottir.

The Event will offer delegates the opportunity to hear from a variety of national and international stakeholders - landlords, policy-makers, pop-up owners and community champions - about how temporary retail space can potentially halt the decline of once vibrant high streets and shopping centres. Regional shopping centres are blighted by empty retail units, providing a challenge to landlords and town planners. High street and town centre services are critical to support sustainable interconnected communities and SMEs contribute to the local and regional economies in terms of spend and employment.

Discussions about the benefits and challenges of offering, managing and utilising temporary retail space will be a key feature of the day, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and network.

For further event information and questions, please contact Professor Clare Brindley or Dr Carley Foster.
