The sixteenth annual congress of the South African Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) is expecting the largest gathering of property people in Africa, as 1 300 delegates have already registered. The congress will be held at the International Convention Centre in Durban from September 19 to 21.
It is supported by the International Council of Shopping Centres and is sponsored by Nedbank Corporate Property Finance and this year’s theme is ‘Connect: The power of personal’ and aims to highlight how con- sumer trends underpin the success of different retail sectors.
The programme is set to offer a range of local and international speakers, including New York-based Avant-Guide Institute execu- tive director Daniel Levine. He will comment on powerful trends and the strategies that retail professionals can use to take advantage of these trends.
“The conference aims to give delegates an opportunity to learn and be challenged, thus improving their business growth and prospects, as well as those of the sector,” says SACSC president Greg Azzopardi.
The event will provide a platform for industry members from the continent to share insights, and take the industry to greater heights and promote business entrepreneurship.
