People & places: a new chapter
The launch of this year’s MAPIC comes at a time of unparalleled turmoil across the globe, with the retail, F&B and leisure sectors at the frontline of the devastating impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
And so the challenge for 2021 is to have a theme that empathises with the pain of this moment. We want now to provide you with positivity and optimism for the end of the year and MAPIC, the leading global event to build urban and retail lifestyle destinations will give you rebound tools.
As a result, our intention for 2021 is to focus on “People and Places” and “A New Chapter”, because the whole industry has to encompass human, face-to-face interaction, emotions, new business models, innovation and the increasing role of social media networks and virtual communications, while also providing the best physical experiences locally, in cities and regions.
