We are pleased to present the last Online Special for 2023.
We were promised a more constant year but experienced a year full of upheavals, unexpected events, and changes. Great challenges have impacted our personal and professional lives. It would be incorrect to deny the problems and downplay their repercussions.
Nevertheless, the placemaking industry did it again. People need and want (physical) retail and the corresponding retail real estate. Many companies are already reporting excellent figures for 2023, and many have been able to prove that innovative concepts pay off, especially in uncertain times. MAPIC 2023, which has just ended, clearly shows where retail real estate stands today. A general positive mood was present in the atmosphere, many projects were presented.
However – and this is what shaped the year 2023 – the individual formats in the industry are developing differently. Outlets, retail parks, and food anchors are the winning formats of 2023! They have shown outstanding performance this year and in previous years. In an in-depth Retail Talk, we recently discussed their principles and what other formats can learn from them. We have compiled the results and the most exciting and instructive articles and interviews from this year in this Online Special.
2023 was also a special year for another reason. We celebrated our 15th anniversary. This was an opportunity to look back, perhaps question some things, but above all, to set the course for the future. We promise to remain just as close to the industry in 2024.
We hope you enjoy reading the latest edition of our Online Special and wish all our readers happy holidays and a peaceful end to the year.
