Looking for insight into what 2020 may bring for our community? Then join REVO for an informative, interactive and research led session where you'll hear from industry experts on the future of retail property.

Join Paul Lawrence, Executive Director of Place, City of Edinburgh Council; Emma Mackenzie, Head of Asset Management, NewRiver; Chris Narrowmore, Partner, Thomas & Adamson; Phil Prentice, Chief Officer, Scottish Town Partnership, and Angus Stenhouse, Senior Portfolio Manager (Real Estate), Aberdeen Standard Investments, as they get to the root of tough questions facing our industry, offering different perspectives on the future role and impact of retail places.

Plus, hear from Revo’s own Senior Research Analyst Zuzanna Baranowska presenting the must read Insightful 2020 report. Followed by a Question Time style panel, where industry experts will discuss perspectives on the role and impact of retail places.

We know 2019 has proven to be another turbulent year not only for the retail industry, but also for the wider UK economy and society. We all hope the continual political and economic uncertainty will soon end. However, clarity in regards to the UK’s relationship with the EU and other parts of the world may only bring limited improvement. After all, the reasons of the challenging conditions in our industry are complex and go beyond economic issues.

Let's get to the root of the tough questions!

  • What is the role of (retail) places?
  • How should we change the way we think about places to create vibrant spaces and communities?
  • Is it still possible to create successful, commercially viable places without considering a wider social context and engaging with local communities?

We believe that understanding the real impact of assets and places on society, and curating places in collaboration with local authorities, residents and businesses are the key to long-term survival of the industry. Join us for the debate and interactive audience Q&A to ask your most burning questions and find the pulse on the industry as the New Year gets under way.
