Future Retail, Powered by PechaKucha
Retail is in a time of flux. With growing rents, online retailing, and an emphasis on experiential visits rather than standard shop floors, London’s retailcommunity is working hard to meet customer’s needs. But how is the sector evolving to work smarter, harder and remain competitive? What is the future for our high streets and shopping centres?
This lively exchange of ideas will showcase innovative projects, strategies and technologies that seek to improve and safeguard retail provision around the capital.
The format, Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience.
"Powered by PechaKucha" events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, and that are usually held as part of festivals and conferences, but can also act as standalone events. These events include presentations that use the PechaKucha 20 images x 20 seconds format."
