Retail cannibalisation is becoming a growing reality in South Africa and, until now, it has been all too easy to place the blame for this squarely at the feet of shopping centre developers.

Getting to know the consumer, monitoring trends and understanding the role of technology will underscore this year’s 6th Annual SA Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) Research Conference, taking place in Sandton on 13 April.
