Over 120 NextGen members joined us at Madison’s rooftop terrace to discuss the future of retail in the City. After an opening address by Steve Bennett (Partner at Gardiner & Theobald) there was a presentation by Nicola Sheppey (Marketing & Communications Manager at ONECITY) who talked guests through the City’s increasingly diverse food, drink and retail offers – and how this is promoted to a younger City worker audience through the @onecityldn platforms. View the presentation here.

A panel of industry experts then discussed the role of retail and other out-of-work activities in the City’s business eco-system and what the future of retail and leisure in the City would look like, considering the rise of online shopping and the decline of the British high street.

Speakers included:

  • David Atcherley-Symes, Retail Leasing Director at Landsec
  • Steve Bennett, Partner at Gardiner & Theobald
  • Will Brown, Associate Director (London Retail) at CBRE
  • Paula Gonzalez, Chair of CPA NextGen Steering Group
  • Annabel Lui, founder of Cutter & Squidge bakery at The Royal Exchange
  • Nicola Sheppey, Marketing & Communications Manager at ONECITY (presentation and moderator)
