About NCSC

NCSC is the organization supporting commercial spaces in the Nordic market. During 2022, NCSC changed its meaning to Nordic Commercial Spaces & Communities – an important reflection of the revitalization going on in our industry. It’s no longer just about shopping. It’s about striking the ideal balance between services, experiences, and necessities, to innovate commerce and serving communities.
