2020 was a year like no other and 2021 is shaping up to be equally as challenging.

Last year the business world was buffeted by an extraordinary set of challenges and the ongoing aftershock of the COVID-19 pandemic continues to threaten a deepening recession, uneven recovery and accelerated changes to all business models and working practices. Businesses will need to be resilient and proactive in their approach to getting through this.

Retail sector: has Christmas killed the high street and the outlook for 2021

Retailers that have arrived safely into 2021 will remember 2020 as the worst year for the high street in 25 years, with just short of 180,000 retail job losses. COVID-19 is exacerbating the divide between online retailers and the legacy of the “bricks and mortar” businesses who have struggled to establish digital routes to market.

What will 2021 bring for one of the hardest hit sectors during the COVID crisis?

Join us on Friday 29 January when James Ashton, a leading financial journalist, will chair a discussion between a panel of retail sector experts.

The panellists will assess the impact and way forward for the high street, reflecting on the latest ONS data from December’s Christmas trading results as well as exploring:

  • the future of the high street;
  • optimal business models; and
  • key considerations and strategic options for retailers to weather the storm in 2021.
