London – The Future Laboratory hosted its Retail Futures Forum yesterday at our Spitalfields HQ, where we unveiled the retail trends shaping the landscape into 2019, such as Grocery AI-sles and Accessible Premium. We launched our latest retail macrotrend, Storefront Salvation, that explores how retailers can save physical retail in the age of Amazon.
Bringing the macrotrend to life, we worked with developers Deeply Digital to create the Storefront Salvation game. Players must open their own shop and see if they have what it takes to keep it afloat during the retail apocalypse. Have a play and see if you are a future-fit retailer.

Our next Futures Forum will be hosted at The Corinthia Hotel on 12 July, and will focus on health and wellness. Tickets are now available in The Future Laboratory Shop.
