Study Tour London

23-24 September 2019
Join us for a 1,5-day exploration of Londons vibrant retail development scene. We will start off with a visit to one of the largest and most exciting redevelopments in London - King’s Cross and Coal Drops Yard. Anthea Harries, Head of Assets, will tell us how this underused industrial wasteland is being transformed into a new part of the city with homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools, and even a university. Further we will look at one of Londons BOXPARK Concepts, followed by drinks and dinner at hotspot Hoi Polloi at ACE Hotel Shoreditch. The next day will go on a Retail Safari where we will look at up and coming retail concepts and trends.
