Abstract

As part of the analysis of changes in the market situation of retail operators in Europe and Ukraine, there is a clear need for detailed elaboration of ways out of the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. It is obvious that marketing approaches and management development strategies are undergoing significant structural changes. And first of all, these changes concern new forms of positioning and worldview. Consumers of shopping malls around the world have realized the possibility of alternative purchases in the online format, so the main task of top management today is to find new communication strategies and new mechanics to attract traffic to their facilities. The largest shopping mall operators in Europe, which are also leaders in asset management, real estate management, and shopping center development and refurbishment, set themselves the task of identifying trends in the retail market in the face of new global challenges. It is important to understand that we have to deal with a wide range of scenarios and measures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak by both local and national governments in different countries where shopping malls are located. In this article, we will look at the main trends that are already being implemented by key players in retail marketing in Europe and the United States.
