People, Planet, Profit: Navigating retail towards a more “human” world

For the retail and property industry, 2021 was a very challenging time. The pandemic accelerated many changes in consumer habits, most of which were already underway, obliging all of us to adapt our way of living and doing business. It is now time for retail and property players to face the challenges and opportunities post-Covid - A world built around human beings, their needs, new behaviours and new ways of living. A world where the boundaries between digital interactions and physical experiences are blurring and where sustainability and responsible consumption are no longer optional.

MAPIC 2022 will continue to play its role as a barometer and window of the industry, guiding all the market players and helping them to navigate this continuously changing world
