Testimonials


I have been a member of MECSC for the past 15 years and owe them a ‘thank you’ for keeping me up-to-date with the retail and shopping centre industry. Working in a dynamic and ‘fast-paced industry’ it can be a struggle to be in accord with the new developments, retailers, trends and key people shaping the industry. The Retail People Magazine keeps me informed, insightful and in touch with the industry.”

LIZELLE FITOUSSI  
CMD, UAE

As one of the article contributors to Retail People Magazine, the main thing I can say is that at every retail event I have attended locally or regionally, people seem to know who I am because they have either read an article of mine or have seen a photo of me in the magazine. I cannot think of a more effective way to give me the exposure in my career that I need to build the right relationships and facilitate business.”

MAIMUNAH SHEBANI  
OMAN

For the past few years retail industry in the Middle East has transformed and Middle East Council of Shopping Centres has helped us a lot to keep up to date with everything new. When I joined MECSC, I didn’t know many people and as well was not aware with latest updates of the retail market. The magazine helped me in understanding new trends, keep update with new projects in the market. I owe MECSC a lot of our success of where we are and helping us and I hope it can help others like me.”

KAMEL SHABAN  
UAE

MECSC ’s Retail People Magazine is providing global knowledge and exposure to both its readers and contributors. As a contributor, the magazine pushes me to always be on top of the topics covered & be on a constant quest for knowing and achieving more to share with the reader's substantial experience, expertise, and content. That in turn elevates my knowledge, skills, and profile, and also boosts my exposure within a bigger network of professionals; all funneling towards enhanced career opportunities and progress.”

SAMAR AKKOU  
LEBANON

This is a great initiative by the MECSC! It gives one an idea of the happenings and views in our industry in the region, draws attention to ideas that are trending and is another way to connect within our f r a t e r n i t y . I t ’s a l s o a w a y f o r m e m b e r s i n o u r f r a ternity to contribute to the industry. The magazine has evolved and has grown from strength to strength and I look forward to many more especially young people contributing to the magazine.

AVIJIT YADAV  
CMD,CSM,CLS,CDP,CRX, KUWAIT

We treasure our market, we believe in the value of exposure to our business community and Retail People Magazine excels at providing this. It is a great way to hear and be heard by the relevant audience. It provides the opportunity to our brand to be associated with a strong and reputable association like MECSC. This leads us to great networking opportunities, assures a solid establishment and ultimately, the ‘brand recognition’ that is deserved. As we work directly with several newcomers, retailers and malls, it is a part of our established marketing strategy to introduce RPM as a vehicle to promote themselves.

ALESSANDRO GAFFURI  
UAE

Retailers and shopping centers are a nexus of transaction and transformation for the Middle East region, and RPM’s audience include stop management in these sectors. The magazine provides a unique channel for bringing new ideas to the professional community, which makes it most attractive to contribute to RPM and join MECSC. Besides the excellent reach and quality of the magazine, the RPM staff is highly professional and easy to work with, and this makes it a pleasure to participate!
