Twilight Trade Virtual Information Session

Global shopping destinations seamlessly weave retail into the fabric of city life, day and night.

The ARA has been working with the City of Melbourne to understand the role that Twilight Trade could play in connecting the daytime and nighttime economies.

With changing consumer behaviour resulting in more people staying in the city later in the day, there is now a strong case for changing core trading hours in Melbourne’s CBD – to 7pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and until 9pm on Thursday and Friday.

To help the retail sector understand and navigate this change, the ARA ran a series of information sessions, which provide an overview of the ARA’s research and business case, outline the pathway to change and help address retailer concerns about shifting core trading hours.

To find out how you can join those retailers who have already embraced Twilight Trade, watch below to catch up now.
