LeisurUp conferences & events programme

Learn, share and connect with the leaders of the leisure industry and the retail real estate industry. LeisurUp and MAPIC offer a series of digital events all year long in addition to the on-site flagship conference programme!

The Age of Responsible Growth: Committing to a better future

For the longer-term future of the retail property industry, we are entering an ‘age of responsible growth’. That means reducing, reusing or recycling products and waste, having more efficient energy and water consumption, considering sustainability and ethics in everything we do. And because consumers are increasingly demanding these elements from the companies they buy from, this is not just good for the planet but good for business.

Examples of this can be seen everywhere in retail, leisure and food, as manufacturing, supply chains, circularity, rent-over-ownership and waste are all targeted.

MAPIC 2023 will embrace these topics and open a new area dedicated to energy efficiency and innovation in the exhibition zone. Let’s solve together the biggest industry’s challenges and create together new business opportunities!
