Shopping malls have changed the behaviour of many consumers in the last few years and have shifted from retail stores to multi-purpose destinations that have become part of people’s lifestyle.

There may be many different theories and expectations about the future of malls, but one thing is certain: the shopping malls industry is on the verge of revolution. Successful malls in 2024 are unlikely to be the ones that are still depending on old concepts.

RLI Connect Global will once again bring together the world of Retail and Entertainment under one roof creating a networking atmosphere unlike any other. From pre-arranged meetings to networking lounges, there will be one very simple objective, to help you do business.

Why Should I Take Part?

How Do Retailers Hear Of The Event?

The team will be inviting Retailers / Entertainment & Leisure Operators to attend the event, it will also be advertised each month in RLI, the world’s only global retail and leisure magazine, promoted via our weekly newsletter and e-shots as well as across all our social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter/X, Instagram, LinkedIn.

What Do I Need To Prepare?

In order for you to have a successful event it is essential that you plan your schedule in advance and research the Retailers / Entertainment & Leisure Operators that you wish to meet prior to the event.

If you do not pre-arrange meetings you will not reap the benefits as these companies tend to pre-organise their itineraries and have little or no time for additional meetings.
