A New Year’s meeting with the tenants and the first meeting with representatives of our business partners ware held on 23 January at the new Ceetrus head office in Warsaw.
During both meetings the last twelve months of our activity were summarized and the plans for 2019 were presented. The passing year has been marked by important events at Ceetrus Poland. These included changing the company name, setting goals and diversifying activities, as well as modernizing our commercial facilities.
- We link people by creating sustainable, smart and lively places to brighten up everyday life”. And we do it with citizens for citizens. We want to create places of links between communities to develop mixed-use projects - emphasised Laurence Paquet, CEO of Ceetrus Poland.
During the opening presentation of the tenants’and business partners’ meetings, Laurence Paquet expressed that Ceetrus creates innovative and sustainable places hand in hand with citizens to shape together the city of tomorrow.
Last year, Ceetrus established cooperation with the new brands which successfully debuted in shopping centres and malls. Thanks to this, its offer of individual facilities has become even more competitive.
During the meetings, the effects of the modernization of four shopping facilities in 2018 were also presented. Auchan Shopping Centres in Żory, Bydgoszcz, Białystok, and Bielany Wrocławskie all have new interiors. The last three have received the Oshopping quality mark. It confirms that the awarded facilities combine commercial, service and recreational functions, creating a new quality for customers.
On the other hand, the BREEAM-In-Use certificate, awarded in 2012 to Galeria Bronowice, the Auchan Hetmańska Shopping Centre and the Auchan Gdańsk Shopping Centre, indicates how important it is for Ceetrus Poland to comply with the principles of sustainable development and environmental protection. The company conducts extensive activities in terms of corporate social responsibility, which is part of our mission. Moreover, Ceetrus cooperates with foundations and charities, and in its shopping centres customers can take part in various educational and social events. Ceetrus also focuses on the development of electromobility services. The network of electric car chargers installed in car parks at the Auchan Shopping Centres is constantly growing, and new services are becoming more widely available to customers.
During the Ceetrus New Year’s MEET UP events, representatives of the company also presented plans for 2019. This will be a year of intense commercialization of the facilities managed by Ceetrus. Another four shopping centres will be modernized, and five facilities will be expanded in subsequent years.
Ceetrus will also apply for the BREEAM certificate for more of its facilities and will continue its policy of managing its land resources in cooperation with business partners.
Ceetrus attaches great importance to cooperation with both tenants and business partners. That is why it has moved its office to the centre of Warsaw. The annual meetings with tenants and company’s business partners were also held in the new head office of Ceetrus Poland.
