The event offers its participants the opportunity to discuss current and future trends and challenges in the shopping center industry, share ideas, share visions and opinions and to get in touch with top decision-makers.
The event is organized by RegioPlan Consulting, a pan-European business consultancy with focus on retail related issues. The topics in 2017 were again set by an advisory board.
One topic in the program for the European Shopping Center Symposium: The re-use of retail space.
What to do when shopping centres have become too large for their location, function, and the changed consumer behaviour? What if the concentration on top locations in retail continues to grow and consumers get better at online shopping? How can retail parks be converted, when consumer behaviour is subject to changes on a regional level?
There will be enough room for networking, discussions and the exchange of ideas, too.
The pre-event Get-Together evening officially marks the beginning of an insightful occasion for project developers, operators, tenants and financiers, top managers in the retail and retail real estate sector, as well as marketers and PR agencies in the extraordinary city of Vienna.
