Wednesday 17th June 2020, 6pm
Join us for an online Emergency Roundtable – ‘Retail in a post-Covid city’ – to take place at 6pm on Wednesday 17th June, as we explore the opportunities facing retail in a city determined to ‘Build Back Better’ and what is needed to enable businesses, and the sector as a whole, to continue to thrive.
From independent shop to department store, showroom to boutique, premises or online, this Roundtable is for retailers, those who rely on the sector, and those who have a vision for retail, in Exeter.
Through the discussion we'll consider the widely held view that the role of cities is changing as a result of Covid-19, and what these changes mean for retailers in Exeter. and also aim to:
- Provide an opportunity for Exeter’s retailers to come together and take a view on what the changing dynamic of the city means for their business
- Provide a supportive environment in which Exeter’s retailers can examine their business and how it might adapt in the short, medium and long term
- Offer Exeter’s retailers a platform through which they can share best practice, whilst benefiting from input from both the city and peers
- Support Exeter’s retailers in collectively determining solutions and resources they will need as part of this recovery, and identify those willing to take solutions forward
