About Abrasce

Founded in 1976, the Brazilian Association of Shopping Centers (Abrasce) acts to strengthen and develop the sector and defend the interests of shopping malls, and has become a benchmark in the Brazilian retail sector.

With roughly 400 members, the Association offers a wide range of benefits, including: legal advice, events, seminars, conventions, training courses, and market research.

Headquartered in São Paulo, with offices in Brasilia as well, Abrasce is headed by business manager Glauco Humai and is supported by a renowned and experienced Board of Directors composed by many of the sector’s foremost businesspeople.

To be aligned with the constant challenges and changes of an increasingly dynamic sector – with consumers who are not only spending the better part of their time online, but also are unwilling to relinquish excellent face-to-face service that rounds out their digital-world experience – ABRASCE has defined three pillars of activities that complement one another and are geared toward the goal of increasingly boosting the growth of shopping malls.
ABRASCE promotes ongoing dialogue with the three branches of government to ethically influence the definition of public policies that affect the sector. It also acts in all lower and higher courts to defend the legitimate rights of its members.
The Association continuously monitors the market and develops studies and surveys to provide in-depth analyses and trend indications for the sector.
ABRASCE fosters the development of people, through transformative experiences in Education and Learning, to enhance organizational performance and business results.

Sustainability is a strategic pillar for Abrasce and for the Shopping Mall sector overall, not only because of the social and environmental issues inherent in mall operations, but also because of the creation of value for business and possible financial returns.
The segment accounts for 3% of Brazil’s GDP and generates more than 3 million jobs throughout its value chain; more than 490 million visitors pass through malls every month. All these figures make us even more responsible for maintaining the health and well-being of the planet and the population.
Modern consumers prefer conscientious brands and demand changes in brand positioning, which is why companies have been developing business models that encompass sustainable projects and reduction of costs, aimed at a holistic and sustainable way of managing the entire business chain.


Abrasce’s Committees act to further the work and discussions on the topics of greatest interest to the segment. Their efforts result in products and publications that contribute toward the development of the Shopping Mall sector in Brazil.


Led by Abrasce’s Market Intelligence area, the purpose of this committee is to discuss the sector’s performance. The primary goal is to combine the professionals’ practical knowledge with the results obtained by Abrasce’s Sector Monitoring, aligning expectations for communication and dissemination, as well as providing information for the market and the media.

Abrasce’s People Management Committee, which convenes at two meetings annually, seeks to expand discussions among Human Resources managers in the sector, sharing the best practices of their organizations and indicating key challenges in the area, and how these challenges can be overcome.


With the strong expansion of shopping malls in Brazil, the sector has become a constant target for government intervention, through laws, decrees, and other legislative measures. The specialized Legal Committee – formed by top managers of Legal Departments at shopping malls in Brazil – aims to ensure free initiative and private trade in a broad-based and unconditional way.

This Committee seeks the best strategies and solutions for an area that is in constant need to keep up-to-date, undergo training, and exchange information. The Security Committee consists of representatives of some of the foremost business groups in Brazil. To better serve the entire country, Abrasce has Regional Security Committees in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Rio Grande do Sul, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Pernambuco, Amazonas and Federal District.
