      New Rules for Investing in Retail
How to Navigate the Sea Changes Transforming the Retail Landscape

Wednesday, November 4, 2015
4:00pm - 8:30pm

Changing consumer demographics, the resurgence of authentic brands, and the explosive transformation of the digital world are among the most significant drivers of increasing complexity in the retail marketplace. The old rules of the road simply no longer apply. Long established brick-and-mortar retailers are re-configuring their models by going “omni-channel,“ while disruptive new retail concepts are changing the face of retail and challenging the validity of existing paradigms.

To help navigate the myriad of challenges and opportunities confronting retailers and investors, we have created a thought provoking program that you cannot afford to miss. McKinsey & Co.’s Retail Team will share some of their cutting edge research in a Keynote Presentation that provides insight into the consumer of 2030 as well as their view of new retail formats to watch and why. Our Fireside Chat guest Glen Senk, former CEO of Urban Outfitters, and now the CEO of the PE fund Front Row Partners will share his views on the future of retail.

Finally, two all-star panels of Investment Bankers and Private Equity Investors will share their views of how these sector changes are impacting the deals that bankers bring to market and how investors evaluate their potential. This conference is a MUST ATTEND event for retailers, investors, and all deal professionals who operate in the dynamic retail sector.
