Future Talk UK:
UK channel outlook to 2027 underlines retail’s multichannel future

This session will use the UK channel forecasts as its foundation to look to 2027, where you can discover how IGD sees grocery retailing in the UK developing and why. This includes a deeper dive into how larger stores are exiting the pandemic in a stronger position.

As shoppers, retailers, and suppliers deal with the impact from the cost-of-living crisis in the country, we also examine how these challenges will impact on channels and trends in the short term and what is likely to happen in the long term.
