Demographics, Digital, Dining and Development: The Forces Driving Retail in 2016 and Beyond

Over 100 people from the property and development industry in Brisbane gathered for an informative evening workshop in April. Hosted by The Urban Developer in association with MacroPlan, the workshop featured our own Managing Director of Retail, Tony Dimasi, speaking on the forces shaping trends in retail, along with renowned ‘foodie’ Francis Loughran from Future Food, as well as developer Matthew Creagh from Marquette. The Urban Developer organised a sensational venue in the Coco Republic store in Fortitude Valley, which combined with a high quality of content provided the ideal mix of food for the brain and a feast for the senses.

Guests were drawn from across the industry and included a number of high net worth developers along with industry consultants, centre managers and other professionals with an interest in retail and shopping centre performance.
