pro-manchester Retail Lunch 22 – The perfect storm

March 2022

pro-manchester is hosting a Retail Lunch 22 – The perfect storm event on 26th April 2022.

After an extraordinary 20+ months for all, the retail sector, in particular, has had to face some extremely difficult challenges. Brexit followed shortly by the global pandemic created the perfect storm, making ordinary business operations almost impossible for some businesses. pro-manchester are hosting their annual retail lunch to address some of the issues of the past 20 months. In the event, the speakers will be reflecting on the Christmas period just past and how retail businesses are managing challenges such as supply change issues, labour shortages and much more.

HGF Trade Mark Director Lauren Somers will be joining the panel of speakers and will discuss Sustainability and the Future of Retail Supply Chains:

Due to events of the past 20 + months we are all in a period of transition but none more so than the retail sector having felt the crippling impact of not just the pandemic but the exit from the EU just a few short months before. Well documented supply chain issues, skills shortages and changes in consumer behavior are all forcing retailers to adopt new back-office operations to ensure the survival and sustainability of their businesses. This panel will explore how retail businesses are adapting, what new innovations are being adopted and what does it all means for the future of the sector.
