AIRPORT RETAIL 308 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2017 shortening lease agreements to get rid of underperforming concessions. She points out that the airport authority at the Den- ver airport requires every concession to redo its space every five years. "Airports, in general, need to look se- riously at how every square foot is being used. If only a few passengers are using the space, then perhaps it needs to be re- considered," she says. Looking ahead, a significant trend for the future of airport retailing is what HOK refers to as "passenger flow intelligence." Readers installed in light fixtures can track passengers via their smart phones. This technological advancement has the potential to weigh significantly on reve- nue generation, improve operations and response time to emergency situations, says Coller. Analyzing passenger movement can help determine when and where retail spending is most likely to take place. Ac- cording to Coller, 10 extra minutes spent in security reduces an average passenger's retail spending by 30 percent. As technology advances, so too will the capabilities of airport retailing. Some airports already offer travelers the option of ordering food by phone and having it delivered to their gate lounge.
