A TALK SERIES EXPLORING THE FUTURE OF RETAIL
Next x Now (old)
NEXT X NOW is an experiential, unique and immersive talk series that takes some of these revolutionary ideas off the page to look beyond the current way of doing and pave the way forward.
Presented by industry leaders in retail, NEXT X NOW will discuss, debate and provide solutions, rewriting retail design codes for a new generation of consumer.
THE RETAIL REVOLUTION STARTS NOW
What will the retail environments of tomorrow look like to keep pace with this ever-changing demand? Will they be modular and multifunctional in design, flexible, and radically sustainable in their thinking? How will physical and virtual realities converge in compelling ways to not only support seamless sell-through and data-driven feedback but also create richer consumer touchpoints that feed our endless appetites for individuality, diversity, and creative expression? Can these new retail spaces help us to find meaning and relevance, ultimately contributing to a greater understanding of ourselves and each other?
NEXT X NOW will answer these questions and more, seeking to define how we will design the physical retail space to accommodate these aspirations and expectations. Hear firsthand from some of the world’s leading voices in retail design – award-winning architectural studios, visionary thought leaders, pioneering developers, and iconic brands – as they come together in a stimulating and engaging event series that fuses different formats (live workshops, Q&As, and interactive talks) to explore the future of retail design.
