It is ideal for developers, planners, investors, retailers, architects, and public officials. The program covers many topics, among them the required market demographics for various retailers, shopping center typologies, consumer psychographics, as well as the nuts and bolts of how to program, plan, and design competitive retail in historic downtowns, underperforming shopping centers, and new ground-up, mixed-use town centers and lifestyle centers.
