Deep Dive into the Berlin Retail Scene

Day 2 of FLP, focused on Leadership in Operations, will bring cutting-edge store concepts and a deep dive into the Berlin retail scene. 

Beginning with a country overview of the German retail landscape, brought to us by retail experts McKinsey & Company, this year’s Store Visits programme will focus on a variety of concepts. Delegates will review how the stores are visibly focusing on purpose: health and well-being, product safety, and environmental and social sustainability.

Berlin Retail Scene

Germany’s economy remains the largest in the EU, and the fourth-largest in the world (The World Bank). Although its growth has been somewhat below that of the EU as a whole, it is steadily growing, increasing by 2.2% in 2017 (Eurostat). Within this strong economy, Berlin has been growing faster than the country, registering growth of 3.6% per annum between 2006 and 2015 versus the country’s 2.7% over the same period.
