Austria nominated three times for ICSC 2017 finale (AT)

Each year, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) recognizes the best shopping centers in Europe. A distinguished international jury of experts has now nominated 13 finalists for the ICSC’s 2017 finale.


Austria is the most successful country, with three shopping centers making the shortlist:

  • Europark Salzburg made it into the finale in the category for established shopping centers
  • Weberzeile in Ried is in contention for the award for new developments, and
  • Fischapark Wiener Neustadt made it into the category recognizing refurbishments and expansions.

    All three Austrian finalists are operated by the market leader: SES Spar European Shopping Centers

    SES Spar European Shopping Centers is overjoyed at the three finale nominations. “Austria has become a trendsetter in the development of shopping centers,” says SES CEO Marcus Wild, who summed up the industry’s development thus: “The trend is clearly away from shopping centers on greenfield sites and towards opening up urban spaces."
