How are retailers performing in the improving economy and what new retailers are setting up in Edmonton? As shoppers become more discerning, could multiple sales platforms become the new normal in retail? What creativity and innovation can owners of retail space use to remain the most relevant attraction for the consumer? With the continued wave of new U.S. retailers coming into Edmonton, what impact has this had on current retailers and how has the traditional business model had to adjust? In addition, how are retailers adjusting to the increased activity of online shopping? The panel will also discuss land and construction prices.

The world of real estate marketing is at a tipping point. From the old days when a few print ads, a brochure and some hoarding was all it took to create a line-up of buyers on opening day, to the new world where social media, digital media, and traditional media must be combined and filled with journalism-style stories to earn a prospect registration, the entire rule book has been re-written. How can you play-to-win in this new arena? How do you get attention in today’s media marketplace? What role do traditional media play in a digital world? How can you use social media to your advantage? How can you make sure your real estate development is noticed, and that the right people are reaching out to your sales team?
Ever since the recession hit like the proverbial ton of bricks, a “new normal” has been the hallmark of success. This session will provide concrete, tangible steps you can take back to the office and apply immediately to your marketing efforts, and a timely perspective on the new realities of new home marketing. Whether you are building residential urban towers, master-planned communities, suburban town homes or recreational offerings, you’ll leave this session with great ideas that can help you succeed.
