Retail and restaurants have adapted their strategies for site selection, and city leaders should understand what these shifts mean to their communities. In many instances, the pandemic has altered trade areas and produced new needs within a marketplace.

- Ideas for business retention programs
Attendees will receive a Walkability Assessment of their Downtown and a Recruitment Focus Categories report.
