Our own Chairman will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Council of Asian Shopping Centers (CASC) Conference 2014, being held in Jakarta, Indonesia from December 4-6. Our Chairman will discuss the impact of online shopping, drone delivery, and other innovations on the shopping center of the future.
Our Chairman contends that if shopping centers are to remain competitive in the future, they must recognize and embrace both innovations – such as e-commerce and Amazon Commoditizing – and the human inclinations which have always been central to retail success.
CASC 2014 will draw leasing executives, asset managers, and other shopping center professionals from around the world to discuss the latest retail opportunities, innovations, and trends around the theme “The Asian Mall: Tomorrow’s Retail Development Today.”
