PARIS, Oct. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The jury of business and retail real-estate experts, chaired by Frederic Laloum, Directeur General Adjoint et Membre du Directoire, Altarea (France), has presented its list of finalists for the MAPIC Awards 2012.

This year the jury had more than double the usual number of projects to review. The categories have also expanded to seven this year from five last year, offering a better picture of both changes in the retail real-estate market and the issues on the agenda in this 18th edition of MAPIC. The 'Best Retail Concept' category for example has been divided into two, one for fashion and footwear and the other for food and beverage as these are the two largest export sectors. In the same way, the new 'Best Multichannel Strategy' category is more in tune with the increasing role that digital commerce plays in the consumer market.
