Participant in Panel Discussion | Digital city centres: how shops and restaurants are reinventing themselves!

City centres are facing major challenges. As shopping areas are becoming increasingly dominated by large chains, more and more vacancies are emerging. The modern-day shopping experience takes place online. And retail isn’t the only victim – restaurants are also perishing. But digitalisation can help. City centres are being revitalised by new combinations of online and local retail, pop-up concepts are breathing new life into vacant premises, and digital networks are being created within the gastronomy sector. This networking is exemplified by the digital town of Ahaus, which has managed to enhance its appeal and start using vacant properties as showpieces.
