“With 114 million* customers per annum, our shopping centres provide an intelligent channel of communication to help you reach your marketing goals.�

what is Brand iQ? intelligent communication Brand iQ is the ultimate platform for putting your brand in front of thousands of shoppers every minute of every day. It is partnership marketing that transcends the traditional avenues of advertising, allowing savvy brands to converse with consumers via multiple touchpoints. By engaging consumers through meaningful experiences, Brand iQ gives you the ability to influence customers on the path to purchase. There is an entire suite of Brand iQ options that arm you with the power to leave an invaluable impression on shoppers as they make their final brand selection in centre.

Brand iQ touchpoints include banners, posters, brochure stands, publications, websites, plus casual leasing opportunities. These touchpoints are designed to not only influence buying behaviour, but also enhance the shopping experience. When supported by experiential marketing activity, the result is an intelligent, well rounded communication platform to help reach your brand’s sales targets.

“Right in the heart of the CBD, over 19 million* fashion savvy Canberrans and tourists visit this centre each year.”

canberra centre ACT Canberra Centre is the ACT’s premier retail destination located in the heart of the CBD spanning over six city blocks. Identified as the fashion leader in the region, the Centre is home to over 300 speciality stores many of which are leading national and international brands. Hugo Boss, Saba, Sass & Bide, Guess and Marcs complement the dual department store offer of Myer and David Jones. Plus Target, Big W, Aldi, Supabarn and the North Quarter dining and entertainment precinct with Dendy Cinemas and a selection of award winning restaurants complete the mix.

Customers The Centre’s central location places it in the heart of a thriving commercial market. Canberra is distinguished by a majority of white collar workers with signficantly higher incomes compared to the Australian Average. The average household income is 34% above the national average. Housing costs as a percentage of income are lower for Canberra residents, which results in higher disposable incomes and hence a greater retail and leisure spending market.6

“We appear on multiple short-term occasions at multiple QIC centres during any given year; this keeps the offer fresh and vibrant while exposing our products to a different set of customers in different locations within the same mall. QIC have proven to be professional and helpful partners in tailoring suitable space to help us maximise customer impact, provoke consumer response and generate additional sales.” - K Walker, BM Angus & Robertson “The team at QIC seamlessly helped roll out a national kiosk network for my client Shades N Style Sunglasses who now have 8 shops with QIC Australia wide.”

mall leasing


short term in-line

- Michael Hennessy, Pinpoint Retail Solutions.

A pop-up shop in one of the centre’s busiest thoroughfares.

Take your product directly to the customer.

Large areas for short term tenure.

“While trading in QIC Centres we exceed our yearly sales projections and are constantly impressed with the dedicated sales teams who always go the extra mile when required.”

Whether it be for a product trial or launch, lead generation, to promote upcoming events, or to generate direct product sales, mall leasing sets the standard for Experiential Marketing. Engage with passing customers and take advantage of the path to purchase sales opportunity. Mall leasing is a cost effective retail choice, with direct measurable results.

Roaming promotions allow product sampling to occur in multiple locations all in one staff shift. Mobile sampling allows promotional teams to be positioned in the most relevant locations of the mall at the most relevant times. It provides greater flexibility of promotion and reinforces your brand to customers on their path to purchase.

Short term in-line or vacant shops provide the opportunity to trial an in-line store, but with more flexibility and lower overheads. Usually available on a month-by-month basis, vacant shops are a great option for clearance sales or alternatively for short term luxe brand secure pop-up store locations.

- Tim Oldfield, CEO, Gold Buyers Australia.
