Retail plays a fundamental role in SEA’s commercial strategy of partnership with brands for the enhancement of final consumer experiences. Within the Non-Aviation Commercial Department, the “Retail Operations Management” team provides ongoing support to commercial tenants regarding airport infrastructures, maintenance, the management of individual and common assets (e.g. site preparation activities, servicing, maintenance needs, access cards), and the monitoring and enhancement of performance indicators for the achievement of common goals. This is developed through frequent contacts and a series of activities, including half-year brand meetings, weekly point-of-sale visits and day-to-day and headquarters-led trend analyses, as part of a structured business review system focused on main indicators, such as performance, customer flows and so on. A number of training and informative courses are also proposed on various topics of interest, for example, Chinese culture or visual merchandising, and in-depth assessments are provided, such as through mystery shopper surveys.
