The changing retail landscape and what this means for 2018

Brendan McGeever would like to invite you to first London Members' Meeting of 2018 on Tuesday, 6th February. This meeting will be hosted by our generous Corporate Partner BDO LLP, 55 Baker St, London W1U 7EU. Registration will begin at 18:00 with presentations commencing at 18:30.

In the aftermath of last summer's EU referendum, retailers approached 2017 with some unease; how would consumer spending hold up? And surprisingly, it was with resilience. As the year unfolded however, the impacts of the fall in sterling and the uncertainty in the UK economy began to take its toll on consumer spending. As we approach 2018, we look at the key disruptors to the sector and how these are making longer term changes to the retail landscape.

Speakers are:
Stuart Deacon, Partner, BDO
Sarah Rayment, Partner, BDO
Felix Connelly, Special Situations and M&A, BDO

Presentations will cover:

  • An up to the minute overview of Christmas retail trading, key trends and headline stats
  • BDO's Retail predictions for 2018
  • A view of Restructuring activity and themes

Registration: 18:00
Presentations: 18:30
Close: 20:30
