EUROPARK Salzburg & WEBERZEILE Ried win important industry prizes

SES Spar European Shopping Centers makes a clean sweep at the 2017 ICSC European Awards

The awards bestowed by the ICSC, the International Council of Shopping Centers, are the most prestigious in the industry. In the year of SES’s 10-year jubilee, there are two reasons for jubilation: First, EUROPARK Salzburg again emerged as a clear winner in the category “Established Shopping Center” in 2017. Second, WEBERZEILE Ried, newly opened in 2015, won the “Regeneration Award” together with the city of Ried im Innkreis. The ICSC established that award to recognize centers that have opened in the last two years and are pioneers in city center beautification. For SES CEO Marcus Wild, who received the awards at the ICSC Conference in Warsaw (Poland), the projects’ urbanity has been a success story for many years: “95% of SES centers are located in cities. We are very pleased that EUROPARK and WEBERZEILE have received these distinguished awards. Both do a lot for their hometowns and regions.”

Shopping Center Sales Increased by 6%

2016 a Record Year for SES Spar European Shopping Centers

  • Growth of SES malls clearly above the industry norm
  • Even better result in Austria: +8%
  • Visitor number climbed to 130 million
  • Continuing expansion in our anniversary year 2017

2016 was the best year so far in the company history of SES Spar European Shopping Centers: The retailers at its 30 shopping sites generated gross sales revenue of €2.85 billion. This represents an increase of 6% compared to 2015. “The growth is mainly due to higher productivity per unit of area,” says Marcus Wild, CEO of SES Spar European Shopping Centers. The leasable area rose by only 1.2%, from 800,000 to 810,000 m², in 2016. The growth in area was due to the successful renewal of HUMA ELEVEN in Vienna. SES also manages shopping malls for third parties alongside its own centers. Clients include Signa, Deka, Unicredit, and Allianz. SES is active in six countries, but its 19 “red-white-red” centers are a particular growth driver for SES: SES recorded a sales increase of 8% in its home market of Austria.

SES shopping centers: Christmas sales with a new trend for 2016

Run on spaces for market stalls and Pop Up Stores

Clearly focused on growth: Marcus Wild, CEO of SES Spar European Shopping Centers, expects excellent conditions once again for the top locations in Austria’s stationary trade during the 2016 holiday season. In addition, SES, Austria’s market leader in shopping centers, has observed a trend in recent years that has gained strength: “The demand for space for Christmas market stands and pop-up stores in our shopping malls was bigger than ever this year. We have housed hundreds of stalls in our 18 SES shopping centers for the Advent season alone. We could not come anywhere close to fulfilling all the requests,” says Wild. The offer ranges from traditional to contemporary, from local crafts to innovative designer fashion—center visitors thus have more variety than ever this Advent.
