On 17 October, Prague, Czech Republic, will see the first Completely Retail CEE, the Central and Eastern European deal-making retail fair. The event brings retailers, landlords and brokers together to explore opportunities in the CEE markets, build relationships and close deals.
This new event builds upon the success of the Completely Retail Marketplace international retail program which have been taking place across Europe since 2012 in London, Stockholm, Dublin and Amsterdam. Completely Retail Marketplace London is on 24 April and will have 2000 delegates and 750 retailers and leisure operators and is a major commercial and networking hub for retail business. This unique Prague event will provide the perfect platform for international retailers to explore retail and leisure opportunities across Central and Eastern Europe.
Julie Fitzsimmins, Director of London based Lodestar commented “I have been looking to develop a Central & Eastern European retail deal-making event for a number of years to open up opportunities for retailers wanting to enter the region. The big issue is always knowledge and network and we believe we can provide this through this forum with a very strong group of partners.”
The Completely Group is developing Completely Retail CEE in Prague in partnership with EuropaProperty and Lodestar, with so much combined experience in property marketing and events the deals focused event will have a strong foundation.
The exhibition itself will offer 35 branded meeting spaces within the historic setting of centrally located Empire Hall and everything is provided for developers, retailers and brokers to have a successful deal-making day.
Commenting on the event, Craig Smith, publisher of EuropaProperty.com said, “I’m excited to be part of the ‘Completely Retail CEE’ expo helping shopping center owners and retailers to get deals done on 17 October. Come to Prague to meet new retailers looking to enter the market.”
With recent successful leasing fairs in Stockholm and Amsterdam, Dom Millar, CEO of The Completely Group commented on the new initiative saying, “It’s exciting to see the exceptional growth of the Completely Retail Marketplace, which started just six years ago, we have great aspirations for Completely Retail CEE in Prague in October and look forward to working with local and international partners.”
