ACROSS started the study tour program in 2023 together with Rüdiger Pleus in order to offer on-site retail experience, show innovative concepts and provide a new platform for networking within the placemaking industry. The premier trip to Lisbon was a great success.

Organized in a very professional way, with a focus on main players on the market. Speakers were very well prepared, emphasizing the most important specifics of the malls we visited. This type of tours could contribute to all professionals from our, retail, industry. – statement by Nemanja Bućinac, Leasing and Commercialization Director at Confluence Property Management

from eight different countries, each bringing unique experiences and insights, fostered vibrant
conversations and connections that I’ll truly value.“ – statement by Peter Henningsen, HyperIn Regional Sales Manager

“I must emphasize that the study tour was a success. It provided us with a comprehensive overview of mall operations, marketing strategies, and customer engagement techniques of different types of malls or outlet village perspective. The experience was invaluable, and it was fascinating to see how each mall we visited created a unique ambiance and atmosphere to appeal to its target customers & catchment area.” – statement by Elda Hysenbelli, ACREM
