THE EVOLUTION IN MERCHANDISE MIX, Implications for Shopping Malls

We are pleased to inform members that we shall be continuing with our Education Series 2018 with the abovementioned seminar.


Within the ASEAN region, Malaysia has the 2nd highest retail spending per capita after Singapore. However, malls today are no longer for retailing but have evolved to become centres for entertainment, leisure and social interaction. It is timely to take cognizance of global trends and the key implications for Malaysian shopping malls so that we can be relevant for our consumers and shoppers in order to remain successful.


Our half-day seminar looks at THE EVOLUTION IN MERCHANDISE MIX Implications for Shopping Malls and will be held as follows:


Date: Thursday, 6 September 2018
Time: 9.00 am to 2.00 pm (including lunch)
Venue: Sime Darby Convention Centre, 1A, Jalan Bukit Kiara, Bukit Kiara, 60000 Kuala Lumpur
Fees: RM800 per pax for members


Our speaker, Property Economist Mr David Larkin is a Director at Cistri who represents Urbis Australia’s international business with the goal to shape cities and communities for a better future. His area of expertise covers the retail and mixed used sectors with a reputation for astute analysis and advice that helps clients to identify new opportunities and achieve their development goals. He will share pertinent and significant pointers on the evolving changes relevant for shopping malls.
