20TH Anniversary RECon Middle East & North Africa

The preeminent educational and networking conference for the shopping centre industry professionals, retailers and owners in the Middle East & North Africa

Networking - Educational Conference - Shopping Centre Awards

Shopping centres in the Middle East and North Africa are among some of the most vibrant and successful throughout the world and during the great recession they proved to be resilient by adapting to the changing financial climate and maintained their relevance through hard work and creativity.

Now that economies throughout the world are improving and with consumers opening up their wallets and satisfying their pent up demand for goods and services, everyone wants to know is it back to business as usual or has the consumer's shopping habits, wants and desires forever been altered? While no one can accurately predict the future, it is clear that what made shopping centres successful in the first place, great brands, eclectic mix of f&b offerings, and an array of entertainment options, will never go out of fashion. But to make these components work successfully you need to be up on the latest trends and best practices.

RECon Middle East & North Africa will take participants on a deep dive to what they need to know now, and in the future, to operate successful shopping centres.

Jointly organized by the Middle East Council of Shopping Centres (MECSC) and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), RECon Middle East & North Africa 2014 will bring together shopping centre industry professionals, retailers, management and consulting companies, architects and design companies, entertainment and leisure companies, product and service providers to the industry, all under one roof for three days of networking, deal making and exploring new business opportunities.

Our Unique Future

Shopping centres and the pastime of shopping in the Middle East and North Africa are lifestyles held in these recreational retail environments. These shopping centres are some of the most vibrant and successful in the world. While no one can accurately predict the future it is clear that what made shopping centres successful in the first place, great brands, tremendous food choices, an array of entertainment and recreational options, will never go out of fashion. These components to retail success continue to work successfully only with hard work, diligence and by keeping attuned to the latest retail trends and best practices. RECon Middle East North Africa will take participants to a new level of what you need to know now, and in the future, to operate successful shopping centres. As retailers your ability to make great strides into accessing these markets is available in a once yearly conference in Dubai.
