This event is the second in a series of workshops designed specifically for community leaders, in preparation for the 27th Congress for the New Urbanism to be held in Louisville in May of 2019.
Robert J. Gibbs’ presentation examines the retail design and merchandising principles used by premier retail developers, and considers how they can be applied to downtown commercial districts. It will explain how the practical science of analyzing and adjusting all elements known to affect a shopper's mood in the marketplace has informed design and development principles for reviving retail in declining downtowns and for establishing viable commerce in new ones. The purpose of these urban retail planning principles is to give merchants on the street the same advantage that those in the most profitable shopping centers enjoy.
