”Retail is a major pillar of urban development. Lifestyles have radically changed in recent years and retail too must adapt to new urban patterns that mix together work, life, leisure, and commercial spaces. Brick-and-mortar shopping is becoming an experience, an entertainment. It is not selling a product, it is selling an experience, an identity to a community, a sense of belonging and social connection. Like the industry, MAPIC has become omnichannel to continue accompanying the industry’s professionals as they face this challenge,” explains Nathalie Depetro, MAPIC’s director.
