Next x Now: Reimagining Future Retail Spaces

Mon 30th May, 2022 – Fri 3rd June, 2022
8:00pm – 9:00pm
A free online event about the future of retail.

In today’s hyperconnected digital world, the rate of change is rapid. What this transformation looks like in our retail spaces is the subject of Next x Now: Reimagining Future Retail Spaces, a free online event taking place at 8pm (AEST) each day from May 30 to June 3.

Hosted by respected European design bible Frame Magazine, the talk will tease out what the complexities of a data-rich future mean for retail and ask the big questions: What role do physical spaces play in a virtual world? How do we balance the need for human contact with seemingly limitless technology? Where do sustainability, diversity and creativity fit into the picture? What will serve customers’ needs and what won’t?

The May 30 event is the second instalment of a two-part series. The first discussion, which took place in April, featured leading international retail experts who canvassed some of the current trends and consumer needs shaping the future of retail design.

The second and final discussion picks up where the first left off, inviting representatives from leading architectural studios from around the world to put forward radical retail design solutions the extend beyond the limits of the traditional brick-and-mortar model. Each day, an architectural studio from the likes of March Studio, Sybarite, ciguë, Brinkworth and Schemata Architects, will explore ideas and opportunities as it relates to reimaginging future retail spaces.

The possibilities are, as they say, endless, which promises for an exciting discussion that will inspire your mind and stretch your imagination. It’s one not to be missed for anyone interested in the intersection of architecture, design and retail.
