Emile Roux

Executive Director


"Coming to MAPIC is a good way to be inspired by new innovations, new ways to promote and animate commercial areas (…) and to apply some ideas or concepts into commercial highstreets in Montreal. A mall in a certain way is like a street. You need to attract customers."

CITIES Pavilion: And why not exhibiting?


Exhibiting at MAPIC will enable you to meet key retailers and find solutions to boost traffic in your cities. This is also the best way to be visible and showcase your next projects to the whole industry. Make new strategic contacts with the 2,300 attendees ( including 700 Retailers) and achieve your business ambitions by attending the pivotal meeting of the International retail community.

I'd rather be a visitor only

Be a part of the major international retail real estate event for cities looking to boost their attractiveness.
