Reed MIDEM announces MAPIC Food & Beverage in Milan, Italy on 23-24 May 2018

Cannes, 2017-Nov-20 — /EPR Retail News/ — Reed MIDEM, organiser of MAPIC, MAPIC Italy, MAPIC Russia, MAPIC China Summit and MAPIC India, today (17 November, 2017) announces the launch of MAPIC Food & Beverage in May 2018.

The new two-day event will be held in Milan, Italy on 23-24 May 2018 at MiCo – Milano Congressi.

Since the EXPO 2015, creating a legacy with its focus on nutrition and sustainable food, Milan has established itself as the World Food Capital City and is today the main stage for events, projects and debate on food-related issues.

Food and Beverage has become a key factor in enhancing the customer experience within retail destinations. MAPIC Food and Beverage aims to be the most effective international marketplace dedicated to Food & Beverage players within the retail & real estate industry.

MAPIC Food & Beverage will offer an exhibition area where international F&B retailers can showcase their concept to real estate professionals looking at expanding their foodservice retail mix. In contrast to the MAPIC in Cannes, retailers will be the exhibitors and real estate professionals will come as visitors. MAPIC Food & Beverage will be a unique, international and powerful business platform.

“For the first time, we are launching a MAPIC event entirely dedicated to a specific segment, food and beverage, and not a local market,” explained Nathalie Depetro, Director of MAPIC markets. “MAPIC Food & Beverage and MAPIC Italy will be held on the same dates and in separate but connected venues. This new event will benefit from the dynamism of the Italian food & beverage sector, while being completely international.”

MAPIC launches the inaugural International Outlet Summit

Paris, France, 2017-Nov-08 — /EPR Retail News/ — For the first time MAPIC is launching the International Outlet Summit, an event dedicated to the phenomenon of outlet centres. This invitation-only summit will be held one day before the official opening of the event in Cannes at 2pm on 14 November. It will bring together industry speakers and players to discuss their visions and upcoming trends in this very dynamic segment of commercial property which are now becoming vital components of the shopping experience.

Outlet centres have developed strongly in the commercial property sector, growing exponentially by 12% annually over the past 20 years. They are one of the industry’s most dynamic formats along with travel retail and e-commerce. The sector has expanded, offering more sophisticated products and services through developers who are deeply committed to their relationships with brands. They now tend to see them less as simple tenants and more as real sales drivers.

Guy Perry, Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Company, will open the International Outlet Summit by presenting a report on the topic. This will be followed by a conference session about global market developments for the outlet sector with a panel of industry personalities such as Kenneth Gunn, Managing Director, FSP Retail Business Consultants (UK); Elizabeth Wagner, Principal, The Outlet Resource Group (USA); Brendon O’Reilly, CEO, Fashion House (Poland); Sébastien Sommer, Business Development Director Europe & Country Head Germany, Neinver (Spain); and Lois Lu Yi, Vice President, Beijing Capital Grand Limited (China).

Five international outlets will also be presented by a panel including David Hinkle, Principal, The Outlet Resource Group; Brendon O’Reilly, Fashion House; and Barbara Somogyiova, Leasing Director Europe, Neinver. To close the event Ben Chesser, CEO, Coniq, will overview digital solutions to improve the customer experience in brand villages.

MAPIC 2017 to be held in Cannes, 15 to 17 November

MAPIC 2017 to be held in Cannes, 15 to 17 November

PARIS, 2017-Sep-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Technology innovation is now an integral part of the evolution of retail real estate. It is helping enhance customer service and boost the attraction of shopping venues. It will be a key component of the innovation track at MAPIC 2017.

Organised by Reed MIDEM,MAPIC, the International Retail Property Market, will be held in Cannes from 15 to 17 November.

Sandrine Devillard, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, will present an exclusive study on developments in consumer behaviour during the MAPIC 2017 opening conference entitled “Reimagining retail in the 21st century!” on Wednesday, 15 November at 9am. This conference session will also give the floor to industry experts who will use concrete cases to illustrate these developments.

In the MAPIC Innovation Forum, a conference, pitching and exhibition area, MAPIC attendees will discover more than 50 companies and startups showcasing their innovative solutions for the retail real estate industry.

The highly customer service-oriented British startups Dropit Shopping and Quiqup will exhibit for the first time at MAPIC Innovation Forum. Dropit Shopping is an application that provides in-shop consumers with the comforts of online shopping by offering a same-day shopping delivery service. Dropit Shopping has already partnered with several major retailers in the UK including Liberty London, M&S, GAP, Uniqlo, Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Michael Kors.

In the same vein, Quiqup offers a personalised courier service, and has recently partnered with the brand Hellmann’s, which wanted to develop its direct sales to consumers, and now offers deliveries of baskets containing all the ingredients needed to prepare a meal at home.

Hospitality is another important aspect of customer service. This is the core activity of Hease Robotics, a French startup specialising in robots for hospitality services and sales support. It will be attending MAPIC for the first time to present its flagship product Heasy, the first interactive-kiosk robot with an integrated payment terminal. This robot has been specifically designed for large public spaces, so it is large, visible from a distance, and completely side-steps speech-recognition (because of noise in public spaces), to focus interaction exclusively on the screen.

The best solutions for creating customer purchasing journeys will be examined in the conference entitled “The new seamless customer experience: how to interact with customers and expand your business” (Thursday, 16 November at 5pm) in the presence of Elise Masurel, Marketing Director at Klépierre, Mathieu Proust, CEO of UberEATS, Pamela Wolf, Innovation Strategy Director at Salesforce and a representative from Clear Channel.

Data collection and analytics often drive new services for customers. Several companies specialising in this area will be exhibiting in the Innovation Forum. MAPIC newcomers Geoblink and Kel Quartierwill showcase their localisation intelligence solutions – i.e. providing data to help retailers select the best site locations.

Other companies such as Axper and Occi, both attending for the first time at Cannes, as well as RetencyRetailicTC GroupXovisConiq and ESRI, will be showcasing a range of solutions derived from data analytics.

“Consumers now have high expectations: they want their shopping experience to be easy, enjoyable and even memorable. For this, bricks & mortar shops remain the vital embodiment of the customer experience. This is why online commerce professionals are increasingly interested in physical retail sites and are coming in greater numbers to MAPIC,” says Nathalie Depetro, Director MAPIC markets.

One example is LDLC, the e-retailer from Lyon specialising in electronic products, which plans to open a hundred stores by 2021.

This example and many others will be discussed at the conference on “E-commerce/online to offline: how brands & pure players can create the best physical experience?” (Thursday 16/11 at 12pm) co-organised with the FEVAD (the French E-commerce and Distance Selling Federation), with representatives from LDLC (France), Logopark Development Group (Russia) and AT Kearney(France).
