SES Spar European Shopping Centers’ trade fair appearance marking its 10th anniversary

Founded in 2007 and today one of the leading developers and managers of first-class shopping centers in top locations: SES Spar European Shopping Centers’ trade fair appearance this year will be dominated by its 10th anniversary. EXPO Real will be held in Munich from October 4th to 6th, 2017. SES operates around 30 shopping locations on its own or investors’ behalf in six countries. SES’s recipe for success: Never develop an off-the-shelf shopping center. Instead, give each center its own regional identity coupled with feel-good architecture and replete with services for its customers. SES will showcase these success factors and its new projects, such as the shopping center in Ljubljana-Šiška, at stand 112 in hall A2.

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.
