Paris, September 21, 2016 – MAPIC 2016 will unveil a selection of new retailer brands whose concepts are riding the current retail trends. In ready-to-wear, food & beverage and retailtainment, the watchwords today are personalising, sharing and buying experience.
Browse the retailer catalogue and discover a selection of these retailers attending MAPIC for the first time to seek out international developers.
Organised by Reed MIDEM, the International Retail Real Estate Market will be held in Cannes from 16 to 18 November.
In food & beverage, there is considerable enthusiasm for innovative culinary experiences such as the French ice cream-maker iceRoll, which prepares unique ice cream rolls using a plate cooled to -30°C. And there are always plenty of mono-product retailers such as Gagao, a Strasbourg cacaoteria where chocolate is very much the star, and Blinerie, a blini specialist that will offer tasting sessions in the new Food Court located in front of the Palais des Festivals.
In ready-to-wear, fashion is now about personalising and DIY. Consumers today don’t simply want to buy a garment – they want to join in the production and personalise it differently from their friends and neighbours. Studiomazé is a young French brand that offers three lines in clothes, each associated with a special degree of creativity: the ready-to-go, the ready-to-adapt and the ready-to-create. In a similar vein, Cabaïa develops pop up stores offering a unique product at set prices: a bonnet with three pompons that can be interchanged using magnetic clips. Another innovative concept that will be showcased at MAPIC comes from the Italian brand DressYouCan that offers high-end, ready-to-wear rentals so that users can access a luxury wardrobe at affordable prices for one evening.
For several years, renowned French retailer Kiabi has been actively repositioning the brand, which aims to reinvest in its presence in shopping malls and to strengthen its international development. Kiabi will be presenting a showroom of over 600 m² (a first for MAPIC) which will unveil to MAPIC participants the innovations of its latest concept store.
Alongside the new brands this year, MAPIC attendees will also be able to meet such industry giants from previous events, including Primark, Inditex, H&M, Adidas Group, Printemps, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Monoprix, Hema, Subway and Five Guys.
