The best of the international retail property market
Mapic, the International Retail Property Market, organized by Reed Midem, is at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes from 15 to 17 November 2017. 8,500 international participants are expected, including more than 2,500 real estate developers and shopping centre owners (500 retailers attending for first-time) who will present their projects and therefore give retailers a unique opportunity to discover new fast-growing international locations. A large number of shopping centre developers from China, India, Japan, Oman, Saudi Arabia and Iran will present their latest development projects to international retailers to encourage them to open stores there.
Special access to local partners
The retailers present this year will also be able to meet more than thirty well-established local partners with development opportunities through various commercial agreements such as master franchises, joint ventures, dealerships, or licenses. These include the Azadea Group (Lebanon) which operates more than 50 brands in the Middle East and Africa, CFAO (France) the leader in specialized distribution in Africa and the French Overseas Territories and Collectivities, AmRest (Poland), which operates over 1,500 restaurants in Central and Eastern Europe, the Global Brand Group, SGN Group (USA) and Rosinter Restaurants (Russia).
A new invitation-only event
In order to facilitate contact between international brands and the most appropriate local partners, Mapic has created an exclusive new event, the Global Retail Partner Summit, which will be held behind closed doors on Wednesday 15 November. Among the brands present are Metersbonwe (China), Fat Face (UK), Rapha (UK) and Tally Weijl (Switzerland) for the fashion sector, Flying Tiger Copenhagen (Denmark) and BoConcept (Denmark) for the decoration sector, and Unilever.

Food & Beverage in the spotlight
Today, one-third of consumers say they visit a shopping centre just to eat or drink. Catering contributes significantly to turning shopping centres into lively, friendly places. Mono-product, street food, upscale sandwiches, traditional or healthy food... Food & Beverage trends are both many and very popular! Mapic will present the full range of new concepts and innovative formats in this rapidly changing sector.
