Cologne and the region are a fast-growing economic area. Growth creates many challenges for urban development, mobility, economic growth and culture. With the club talks, DuMont Rheinland, Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger and the Protected content are institutionalizing a neutral platform that brings together key opinion makers and decision-makers on an ongoing dialogue. The club serves as a home for discussions on topics such as:

• What is the vision for the future?
• Which guard rails are there for the development?
• What moves Cologne and its surrounding communities today, what holds them together and promotes cooperation?
• Which facets are there that present the transformation of our metropolis?
• With which eyes do you look at the development of this city?
• What creative solutions do a region really make "smart" for the people themselves?
• How do we deal with data?
• Can one think of the region as a platform?

Focus on trade in digital transformation:

It is becoming increasingly difficult for local retailers to generate high rents with their business model. In many places, sales are reversed. In many inner cities, there are now always the same offers of the major global retail chains. The result is a monoculture of the same fashion labels in German inner cities. A lively shopping street creates more than just jobs and sales. It's also about the social interaction of a city. In many cities, the shopping streets look bleak. The shop dying has long been completed. The dominance of online commerce will further aggravate this trend. In the US and partly in Chine, the big malls are empty.

• What are the big trends in retail?
• What can be expected in Germany in the next few years?
• How does the city of Cologne look like?
• What does this mean for urban development?
• How will rental rates develop in inner-city locations?

These and other questions will be discussed during the event.
