Forum Aveiro, which is in the heart of Aveiro, was opened on 29 September 1998. It is an integrated urban development project consisting of 76 stores covering, 17,500m2, a covered parking area for 1080 vehicles, 56 apartments, leisure areas and a garden.
Since it was opened two decades the promise made to customers and storeowners has remained the same: to be the city’s number one Shopping Center. And 20 years later it is still the meeting point for the local population. Thanks to the years of experience and a strategy focused on customer satisfaction, in 2018 it was awarded the “Five Star Portugal” prize in the “Portuguese Shopping Centers” category.
It was the nation’s first open-air Shopping Center and represented an innovation in Portugal where gardens, green areas and public spaces prevail. During its design and construction special attention was paid to the choice of colours and materials. Its natural stone facades give Forum Aveiro a contemporary style, which at the same time is in keeping with Aveiro’s traditional architecture, which earned it praise from the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC).
The center has been awarded a number of environmental certificates. Its management system was designed not only to control the impacts of its activities, but also to improve its ecoefficiency, while at the same time encouraging suppliers and partners to adopt more sustainable practices.
Thus Forum Aveiro is at the epicenter of the national fashion. The goods and services on offer combine the traditional and the modern, so as to provide unique shopping experiences and disseminate the latest trends. On top of this Forum Aveiro promotes numerous fashion related events.
The latest investment saw the remodelling of the Food Court. The new court has 11 restaurants and spaces designed to be comfortable and modern that set the standards for the contemporary consumer. That investment will be a cornerstone in the renovation process. And the renovation will take into account the latest global trends which show that Shopping Centers are not just walk through areas but rather are meeting points for those seeking leisure and entertainment.
