The panel will offer and overview of the supply and demand study. They will tackle experiential retail opportunities, neighborhood needs, retail adaptation patterns, as well as brick and mortar conversions.
Attendees will be among the first to hear the results of the Hollywood Survey, an initiative commissioned by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of this survey is to help capture demographic, behavioral, and attitudinal analytics of the diverse people who make up this thriving community in the heart of Los Angeles. The goal is to further the economic revitalization of this historic community by helping businesses, investors, and policymakers better identify and understand “who” Hollywood is today; “what” drives behavior; and “how” respondents feel about various aspects of living, working and/or visiting Hollywood.
Attendees will also receive a copy of the popular Hollywood Economic Development Update 2018 which highlights projects currently under development in Hollywood, and the Chamber’s annual publication Hollywood Guide & Community Profile.
