Flagship theme: Building emotion into physical spaces

Integrating Leisure and Entertainment in lifestyle destinations in the new post-crisis world

In an increasingly connected and digital world, creating places where people can enjoy vibrant experiences and share them with family and friends has become a real game-changer 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 proper ties.
