How COVID-19 is Permanently Changing Retail and Luxury Properties

May 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

free to members

For the past few years, a major pivot has been underway in the worlds of luxury and retail. As owners started to rethink what luxury means to high net worth consumers (and retail properties to the middle-class alike), the pandemic slam dunked over any immediate plans to action. After social distancing ends, just what will the demand be for projects, across the board? Will the current economic downturn – the worst since the 1920s – revert its dip anytime soon? For bored billionaires and centi-millionares, you gotta think the pandemic is driving them crazy. Will they still put stock into properties following the longest isolation and removal from their economic fantasies in their lives?

Join Sangeetha Ramkumar, founder & CEO of Satori@20, for a virtual talk via Zoom. She’ll be joined by DeAnna McIntosh, founder of The Affinity Group International, to provide insight.
