After a successful debut in 2014, the Future High Street Summit is returning in 2019 to offer councils, town teams, business improvement districts (BIDs) and solution providers the opportunity to share their ideas and experiences for a more prosperous future high street. The Future High Street Summit 2019: Focus on Footfall will take place on 18 September 2019 at the Nottingham Conference Centre.
The Future High Street Summit was the brain-child of Clare Bailey (formerly Clare Rayner), a consumer champion and passionate high street campaigner. At a time when the media almost constantly proclaimed ‘the death of the high street’, Clare felt that there was simply too much talk and too little action.
By connecting with several individuals from town teams and industry bodies across the UK, it became clear that there were fantastic examples of towns, communities and high streets implementing projects with a significant positive impact – and often at a modest cost.
Pindar Creative will be exhibiting at the summit for the first time, to showcase recent projects promoting active and sustainable travel, and their impact on footfall. This will include wayfinding schemes and mapping projects designed to promote BIDs.
The summit promises an action-packed agenda focusing on measuring, managing and promoting footfall.
Employees of BIDs, local authorities and councils or volunteers with an organisation such as a Town Team are eligible to register for two free delegate tickets per organisation.
