7. RegioPlan Shopping Center Syposium Vienna
One issue that has lately been discussed in the industry already has a primary place in the program for the following European Shopping Center Symposium: the re-use of retail space.
What to do when shopping centers have become too large for their location, function, and altered consumer behavior? What if the concentration on top locations in retail continues to grow and consumers become better at online shopping? How can retail parks be converted, when consumer behavior is subject to change at the regional level?
