IPM Webinar – 'The Sustainable High Street' - 25 Sept 24

Sustainability. Survey on survey tells us it’s something that means more and more to a growing number of our high street customers, especially but not only in younger generations. It’s an issue impacting our buildings and their suitability going forward, for logistics, for the way we run our businesses and the services they offer, and how places operate, and more.

In this IPM webinar we’ll share insights from some of the evidence-based studies being done on this issue, and hear from IPM members and partners who have sustainability at the heart of their projects in business, on public realm / street scene and beyond.

2.00pm – 3.30pm | Wednesday 25th Sept 2024

IPM Webinar – 'The Digital High Street' - 31 October 2024

How much and how well are you using digital technology to improve your high street? And importantly, what more could you do by drawing on case studies from other places that are taking this forward?

Footfall counting, place marketing, trail and other apps – these are all among the more widely used examples but what’s new on those, and what else are places doing, as one of our speakers has described it: “…to collect, analyse and share high-quality data to make decisions on improving management of public realm, increase the efficiency of service delivery or respond to environmental change.”

We’ll hear from IPM members at the forefront of this work and explore some of the projects they’re leading.
