Young business professionals in the Santa Clarita Valley will have a chance Wednesday to learn about elevating the retail shopping experience at the upcoming NextSCV event. 

An expert presentation, dubbed Relevant Retail, will offer attendees a look at how a multinational company like Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield is implementing changes at the local Westfield Valencia Town Center as part of evolving the retail industry. 

The event is offered by the SCV Chamber of Commerce’s NextSCV — which targets business professionals under the age of 40— and is scheduled 5-8 p.m.  Wednesday, July 24, at the Westfield Valencia Town Center, located at 24201 Valencia Blvd.

Presenter Corrine Barchanowicz, senior general manager at Westfield Valencia Town Center, will also provide behind-the-scenes insight into the $20 million updates underway and the proposed $100 million renovations of the former Sears building into a new Costco, high-end theater and full-service gym. 

Attendees will also have an opportunity to network after the presentation at The Dudes’ Brewing Co., located at the Town Center.
