    Event description

    Global shopping destinations seamlessly weave retail into the fabric of city life, day and night.

    The ARA has been working with the City of Melbourne to understand the role that Twilight Trade could play in connecting the daytime and night-time economies.

    With changing consumer behaviour resulting in more people staying in the city later in the day, there is now a strong case for changing core trading hours in Melbourne’s CBD – to 7pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and until 9pm on Thursday and Friday.

    To help the retail sector understand and navigate this change, the ARA will be running anΒ information session on May 13, to provide an overview of the ARA’s research and business case, outline the pathway to change and help address retailer concerns about shifting core trading hours. The session will be an opportunity to hear from Jason Robertson from the Australian Retailers Association about the project, who will lead a panel conversation with industry experts talking about their perspectives on Twilight Trade. There will also be an opportunity to network with others in the industry.Β Β
