Retail Reboot webinar: Adjusting to the new normal: lease and legal considerations

Engaging with landlords, consumer and retail law in the new normal

With so many adjustments required to practices, policies, premises and personnel for restarting under Levels 3 and 2, you might be feeling overwhelmed with what you can, must, and cannot do.

Massey University, in conjunction with a range of industry partners including RetailX and Retail NZ, are here to help provide some guidance and reassurance as we pivot to the new normal.
