3:00 pm to 4:30 pm -- Retail Rebirth
 
Description: It's easy to speculate that retail is in trouble, but dramatic headlines announcing store closures and the death of shopping malls don't tell the whole story. The industry isn't dying; rather, it's adapting to consumer preferences for online retailing and other nontraditional models — and appraisers working in this sector must navigate a changing landscape.
