The AECC

The Spanish Association of Shopping Centres and Retail Parks, AEECC, brings together professionals, businesses and institutions whose work is directly related to the sector of Shopping Centres and Retail Parks.

The primary goal of this Association, created in 1980, is to conduct activities for generating knowledge, boosting relationships and representing the interests of this sector. The AECC takes a joint approach to all aspects that aid the shopping and retail industry and help members to achieve greater progress. Managed democratically by its members since its founding, the AECC is an independent, plural, non-profit and private national body.

A committed and multidisciplinary team that brings a strategic and methodological focus to all our questions.
