Supporting Members Luncheon
"Retail Business in Turmoil: Lumine's Strategy"
The French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Japan is pleased to invite its Supporting Members to a luncheon gathering at Hyatt Regency Tokyo. This time, we are honored to welcome Mr. Yoshiaki Arai, President and CEO of Lumine, Co. Ltd, as a guest speaker.
The traditional way of retail is out – retailers are looking for new ways to survive. Growth has been stunted by ever-changing consumer attitudes. Today’s millennials buy when they need to, not when retailers are ready to sell. At the same time, shareholders expect retailers to find new ways to show profitable growth.
How to drive sales and profits when traditional retail formats are no longer relevant to rapidly changing consumer spending habits? Mr. Arai will give a talk about Lumine’s strategy in a new age for retail business.
Lumine is the leading developer of full-service shopping centers in the Tokyo area with 16 centers that total approximately 2 million square feet of gross leasable area. Their main mall, Shinjuku Lumine, attracts without a doubt one of the highest percentages of commercial foot traffic per square meter in Tokyo.
This is a unique opportunity to meet the President of a major Japanese retail company and to exchange ideas with top corporate-level representatives from various industries, during an informal gathering around a meal at the elegant Hyatt Regency Tokyo, situated next to the Shinjuku Central Park, and within short distance of the Shinjuku Imperial Gardens, Meiji Shrine, Odakyu store, and conveniently close to Shinjuku Station.
We are looking forward to seeing you at this event.
