MAPIC 2020 intends to stimulate a more collaborative retail
03 July 2020 | Vanessa Sousa

"Embracing Collaborative Retail" is the motto for MAPIC 2020, which should take place at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes during the coming 17th, 18th and 19th of November.


This year, MAPIC’s goal is not just to support the international retail industry, but also to provide an additional stimulus, since this was one of the segments most affected by the pandemic crisis. But not all was bad. As explained by Nathalie Depetro, director at MAPIC, «instead of transforming the industry, the pandemic crisis accelerated the already existing trends».

«In November, we will focus our collaborative experiences, creating business, sustainability and data sharing models and a more general resources trade movement. A large part of the retail’s recovery depends on everybody’s ability, since the segment’s reconstruction will need to be collective. It is within this context that MAPIC, more than ever, will play a fundamental role as a space for sharing points of view and information on an international scale», revealed MAPIC’s director in an interview.

In this new edition, MAPIC thus promises to focus on issues that are key for the retail industry, from innovation and the segment’s reinvention to the new forms of collaboration between tenants and owners, including also the businesses’ sustainability in the future.
