David Chipperfield will deliver a keynote speech on ‘New Cities’ at a Handelsverband Deutschland (German Retail Association) conference at Soho House in Berlin on 22 September.

The event will kick off a programme entitled  “Denken und Handeln” (“Thoughts on Commerce”) which will address the economic, social and environmental challenges ahead for cities, and the role retailers and commerce can play in their future development. The Association aims to foster an in-depth, long-term dialogue between politicians, businesses, cities, and municipalities.

Following the speech, David Chipperfield will participate in a panel discussion with Stefan Genth (CEO of Handelsverband Deutschland), Timm Homann (CEO of Otto group), moderated by Hans Jürgen Jakobs (Editor of the Business newspaper Handelsblatt).
