2007 MECSC Annual Convention

Mar '07
The 12th edition of the Middle East Council of Shopping Centres Annual Convention, the region's premier networking event for shopping centre and retail professionals, has expanded this year to include a Leasing Fair and Trade Expo for the first time.

The event which will be held at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 19-20, 2007, will focus on the development and future course of the region's retail real estate industry with the theme 'Middle East Shopping Centres Come of Age'.

“This year's event is bigger and better than ever before which reflects the robust growth of the region's retail industry, estimated to be worth $100 billion per annum. With globally noteworthy mall developments, surge in tourism and footfall, the region's retail space is set to expand even further and the Convention will highlight the development and investment opportunities in this high growth market, “said Mike Davidson, President of the Middle East Council of Shopping Centres.

Over the years, the MECSC Annual Convention has emerged as the most important sourcing and networking event for the Shopping Centre and Retail Industry in the Middle East. It is the only event of its kind in the Middle East, and provides a perfect platform for professionals from the shopping centre industry, retailers, investors and product and service suppliers to meet and discuss potential new business.

“We have received an overwhelming response from companies wanting to popularise new retail and mixed use developments as well as companies who would like to showcase their products and services to the thriving Shopping Centre and Retail industry. The event has attracted companies from all over GCC, Europe, the Indian subcontinent, Asia and USA. This is an excellent business opportunity to develop contacts and form new partnerships, “said Kim Redman, Regional Director for the MECSC.
