The Age of Responsible Growth: Committing to a better future

For the longer-term future of the retail property industry, we are entering an ‘age of responsible growth’. That means reducing, reusing or recycling products and waste, having more efficient energy and water consumption, considering sustainability and ethics in everything we do. And because consumers are increasingly demanding these elements from the companies they buy from, this is not just good for the planet but good for business.

Examples of this can be seen everywhere in retail, leisure and food, as manufacturing, supply chains, circularity, rent-over-ownership and waste are all targeted.

MAPIC 2023 will embrace these topics and open a new area dedicated to energy efficiency and innovation in the exhibition zone. Let’s solve together the biggest industry’s challenges and create together new business opportunities!

Join The Happetite, MAPIC's food forum, to discover innovative business models and see how the restaurant industry is embracing corporate social responsibility (CSR) to positively impact the environment and society, while enhancing the customer experience.


Retailers, developers, investors, and new entrants all have a responsibility to shape the world for future generations. The next generation of retail is about prioritizing people and the planet.

The evolution of retail property assets

By 2050, 70% of the world will live in cities. Retail properties are crucial to improving urban life with mixed-use developments that promote community and a sense of belonging.


MAPIC focuses on innovations that help the industry understand and meet customer needs, including data collection, AI integration, and resource management strategies.
