Ghent nominated for the prestigious Mapic award

Ghent nominated for the prestigious Mapic award

The jury of the prestigious awards at the Mapic real estate fair in Cannes has nominated Ghent for the second time in a row as a nominee for the "Best Urban RetailProject worldwide" award.

Second nomination in a row

Alongside Marseille and Warsaw, Ghent will compete to win the "Best Urban RetailProject" award after it had filed a dossier called "Ghent, creating an open air shopping center" which focuses on the redevelopment of its commercial axes in the inner-city.

 

Ghent also believes Mapic is the ideal way to promote itself with international retailers. "An increasing number of international chains choose Ghent for their flagship stores or for their first store in the Belgian market", Ghent says proudly.
