The retail industry in 2019 had grown to $3.8 trillion. Up 5% over the previous year and at the fastest rate since 2006. Technology applications are key in facilitating and enabling such tremendous growth. The challenges of 2020 have caused most retailers to “throw out the book” of how they run their businesses and continue to have a tremendous impact on the real estate they occupy and how they use it.
The CoreNet NYC PropTech committee has brought together key technology leaders to discuss how technology has historically been used to enable the retail market, how technology has empowered retailers to pivot in turbulent times, how technology is enabling retailers to take business into the future and what the impact will be on commercial real estate.
