There were thousands of delegates on hand for MAPIC 2011 in Cannes, France. We were there to catch all the action, including exclusive live coverage and stunning photos of our very favourite stands, concepts and events.
Your intrepid blogger was on site to check out the very best displays and stands from the world’s top property professionals. My top three choices represented some remarkable displays covering a range of issues, including Machizukuri’s minimalist Cool Japan stand, Frey’s ornate gentlemen’s club, and Amorino’s innovative ice cream concept.
We captured high-quality images of our favourite stands. With hundreds of eye-catching booths packing the Palais it was tough to cover everything, but you can catch our snaps of the best and brightest right here!
Haven’t had enough? Check out photos of MAPIC’s MORE Pavilion. This extremely popular pavilion featured the industry’s most innovative thinkers and projects, proving itself a spectacular showcase for today’s best and brightest retail concepts, trends and technologies.
You can read all about the hottest retail real estate trends in our MORE Vision series right here on the MIPIMWorld blog. In our most recent MORE Vision article, we discovered that while promotional events have long been used to draw in curious onlookers, customers now demand more. Today’s shoppers don’t just want to buy—they are looking for opportunities to learn, share and discover through the integration of culture, leisure, entertainment and retail.
In passing take a look at the snaps from the Opening Cocktail Party, along with MAPIC as seen from inside and out!
