LeisurUp 2020 is becoming a 100% digital event aiming to bring all the international industry stakeholders together. In the COVID-19 era and beyond our industry needs to collaborate, define new partnerships, operating models and reinvent the leisure and lifestyle destinations. In that frame, we have completely reshaped our conference programme which will become 100% online and hosted on MAPIC Digital platform. We have selected for you the most accurate topics and the most relevant international speakers & experts.

Building emotion into physical spaces

Integrating Leisure & Entertainment in lifestyle destinations in a new era

In an increasingly connected and digital world, creating places where people can enjoy vibrant experiences has become a real gamechanger for local policymakers and property developers. Integrating leisure and entertainment in physical places is now the key to regenerating deprived areas, bringing new life to urban and retail destinations and building new modern mixed-used properties. Leisure and Entertainment industry players are taking a central role in changing the way we interact with physical places.

However, the COVID-19 outbreak has deeply affected the Leisure and Entertainment industry. An amazing line-up of renowned experts will share their insights and visions on the latest trends, strategic approaches, new successful models and economics of location-based entertainment solutions in the post coronavirus world.
