Masters of Adaptation

27 October 2020

How can we make cities, streets and stores more adaptable to change?

This event has been and gone. See what went down...

Throughout history we’ve seen pandemics give birth to a period of radical creativity: from the Black Death and the Renaissance to the Spanish flu and the Roaring Twenties.

However, history has also shown us that while some cities have boomed following a crisis, others never recovered. We have an opportunity now to reimagine a better future for our cities.

Join us as we bring together a distinct set of voices from retail and real estate to explore how we can make our cities, streets and stores more dynamic and adaptable to change.

The conversation will explore

  • The temporary and permanent shifts impacting our cities
  • What can be done to respond faster to changing consumer needs
  • Making our cities and our high streets more resilient to change
  • How to encourage more entrepreneurship on our streets
  • Embracing creativity in retail


  • Martyn Evans, Creative Director, U+I
  • Bronnie Edwards, Senior Retail Leasing Manager, Grosvenor
  • Luca Calcamuccio, Global Director of Retail Experience, Charlotte Tilbury
