Market Leader SES Spar European Shopping Centers at EXPO Real:

Multifunctional Locations are the Future

The "More Than Just Shopping" motto is the theme of this year's SES appearance at the Expo Real international trade fair, which takes place from Monday, 8 October to Wednesday, 10 October 2018 in Munich. As a developer and manager of first-class shopping centers in prime locations, SES will showcase itself via an exhibition booth for the eighth time, and its projects will highlight trends in the development of thriving retail destinations. Whether retailing, urban meeting zones, high-end gastronomy, entertainment, or hotel use: SES is putting its experience in multiple use of real estate to even greater use with regard to its current projects. SES will show-case the district center in Ljubljana-Šiška as well as the multifunctional shopping district in Lienz at Booth 112 in Hall A2. At the trade fair, SES will transform the future of shopping into a tangible experience and will paint a live portrait of the future together with booth visitors and graphic recording professional Christian Ridder. SES operates approximately 30 shopping locations in six countries, either owned or on behalf of investors.
The opening of FORUM 1, an SES Spar European Shopping Center location, took place exactly 10 years ago: The newly erected building at Südtiroler Platz 13 opened its doors on 29 August 2008. From the beginning, SES has leased the shopping center from building owner Rhomberg on a long-term basis. An expansion was carried out in 2011: Via the newly built bridge, FORUM 1 was connected to the former Forum department store location, which is owned by the SIGNA Group, and was expanded to 50 shops. To this day, SES has successfully managed both parts of the building under one brand. With over five million visitors a year, FORUM 1 has established itself as a major economic force in and around the railway station area: Residents of the city of Salzburg, as well as commuters, travelers, and students, value the center as a meeting place due to its easy accessibility and proximity. FORUM 1 fulfills an important function as a local supplier, offers trendy brands, and promotes local Salzburg companies, such as the Rößlhuber bakery from Bergheim, which is new to the center this year.
