Duration: 1 hour
While the 2017 holiday season may have brought some relief, bricks-and-mortar retailers are still under immense pressure. The continued rapid growth of e-commerce points to a radical shift in consumer buying habits that is transforming the retail landscape—shoppers are moving out of the aisles and onto the Internet. Key indicators suggest the resulting decline of bricks-and-mortar retail could continue for years. For investors, retail disruption creates opportunity.
Join us as we discuss the soaring growth of e-commerce, the decline of traditional retail, and the outlook for 2018 and beyond:
- With so many retail bankruptcies over the past several years, is the worst behind us?
- Can anyone stop the growth of the Amazon juggernaut?
- What could potential trends in retail look like, and can legacy bricks-and-mortar retailers adapt?
