Feel Good - The Future of Leisure, Entertainment & Wellbeing

Feel Good - The Future of Leisure, Entertainment & Wellbeing

Dominic Bouvet • 31/01/2020


Fun. Frenetic. Fast. Our modern lifestyles can be all these and more, as we scoot around in top gear juggling the ever-changing demands of family, friends and colleagues. This blurring of home and work is having a marked and irreversible effect on what we have traditionally called the leisure sector. Leisure takes place in a diverse range of settings. And it covers a much wider spectrum of activities, enjoyed with a greater variety of people from our social circle – including all important me-time.

Leisure was once defined as having time out. Now the focus has shifted to feeling good and maintaining our wellbeing. To provide a clear grasp of the leisure industry’s likely direction of travel we share The Feel Good Trilogy of insights.

Rooftops of EMEA

The role of rooftops in placemaking and asset profile-building for commercial real estate shouldn’t be underestimated. A popular rooftop venue can raise awareness of a slightly off-pitch or under-rated location in a way that is hard to achieve through traditional marketing methods.

Food Halls of Europe

The phenomenal rise of the food hall doesn't look set to slow down with over 100 already open across Europe. They offer lower rents for food and beverage operators and more choice for customers but what should landlords, shopping centre owners, managers and food vendors provide? Where should it go? And how much of it should there be?
