The experts discussed lease relations specific to business centres, perspectives of development of hobby-centres in shopping malls and general situation on the market in the Russian regions.

While discussing hobby-centres, Nina Yakobashvili, Lease and Concept Director at Essence Development, pointed to the limited stock of this type of retailers currently present on the market and expressed her doubt that this kind of retail will be booming in the upcoming 2-years perspective due to the limited segment of its target audience.
