About us

A unified voice for retail practitioners
in the space management field.

The Space Planning Community by ARC is a community of senior leaders and practitioners of Space Management at both global and regional retailers and the suppliers, manufacturers and brokers that support those retailers. ARC (The Association of Retail and Consumer Professionals) is the master association and parent company for not only the Space Planning Community, but also both the Category Management Association (CMA) and Shopper Insights Management Association (SIMA).
