PARIS, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A guide to trends and a sharing and discussion media, MORE Vision is an online publication that every two months analyses a major consumer trend that is shaping retailing today and tomorrow. MAPIC's second issue of MORE Vision, available today, explores retailer responses to the new urban culture and the growth of the 'Citysumers'.

The world's cities are expanding rapidly and retailers, brands and shopping centres are competing fiercely to attract more and more urban consumers, known as "Citysumers". These urban consumers are strongly attached to their local culture, focused on the latest new thing - especially the most exclusive products - and have advanced online skills that retailers are leveraging to encourage city people to visit their stores.

Building on concrete examples of initiatives from brands such as Starbucks and IKEA, MAPIC's second MORE Vision features the innovations developed by retailers to attract a demanding clientele. You'll also find exclusive interviews with Roger Wade, Managing Director of 'pop-up mall' Boxpark, Alexander Otto, Managing Director of ECE or David Atkins, CEO of Hammerson.
