The Retail Village at MAPIC 2022

November 29, 2022 @ 8:00 am - December 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Focus for new retail brands and concepts from around the world is launched for this year’s show!


MAPIC, the leading retail real estate event in the world, is launching today its Retail Village concept for MAPIC 2022. A major, central location has been set aside within the Palais des Festivals for the show – to attract the most progressive, innovative and connected retail brands in the industry. With constant flux and change in the retail industry, the purpose of the Retail Village at MAPIC is to not only put retail back on stage but also to showcase all new, agile retail initiatives. As part of its effort to build the right retail mix, MAPIC and its partners have curated these innovative retail concepts that are all connected by their shared values of sustainability, local sourcing, inclusion, and diversity.

Francesco Pupillo, Director of MAPIC commented: “Historically, MAPIC itself brings together retailers and property players looking to promote or negotiate acquisitions and leases – but this well-established relationship becomes much more complex as the most successful companies are not always those that find the best physical locations. It is now those that combine their physical and digital markets to create a fluid, coherent experience – regardless of the channel taken but with a customer-centric approach. The Retail Village at MAPIC will host innovative brands selected for the originality and agility of their concepts.

MAPIC: the place where all brands come together

Most major retail brands have already integrated these changes and adapted their strategy to respond to this new landscape. Many of these names have already signed up for MAPIC 2022 in Fashion (ADIDAS, Primark, Guess, Dolce & Gabbana etc.), Food & Beverage (Five Guys, Nespresso etc.), Leisure (The Big Picture, Kids&Us etc.), Grocery (Monoprix, Naturalia etc.), Health & Beauty (Sephora, Estée Lauder, Rituals etc.), Culture & Media (Apple, Fnac Darty etc.), Home Furniture (IKEA, Electro Depot…), Utilities & People Services (Norauto France, Orange, Free).

MAPIC takes place from Tuesday 29th November to Thursday 1st December 2022 in Cannes, France, where the main role of the event is to be the trendsetter and barometer for the industry – curating all thought leadership, innovations and discoveries from around the world and infuse them with insightful learnings the attending participants during the 3-day event. The theme for this year is People, Planet, Profit, navigating retail towards a more human world – to help the industry drive sustainable change.
