The aim of the Colloquium is to gather researchers, professionals and students interested in retail, services, tourism and consumption in cities, and their relationship with the territory, the image of the city and the urban landscape, as well as their role in urban and regional dynamics, in architectural production and in design, from a transdisciplinary point of view.
CINCCI events have been held since 2005, every two years, and are now in their VII edition. Born within the scope of the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at USP, associated to the Laboratory of Commerce and City – LABCOM, it presents itself as the only national event dealing with the relationship between commerce, services and the city with this area of knowledge. The relevance of these studies on the activities of commerce, services and the city occurs, fundamentally, by the function of supplying, distribution and consumption of goods and services, by the urban vitality promoted and by the strengthening of human relations by providing and enhancing the meetings, so desired and valued at the present moment.

The transdisciplinary character that involves the theme “commerce and the city” is evidenced by the growing participation of participant researchers and guests from other areas of knowledge such as geography, tourism, economics, anthropology, urban history, design, administration and marketing, among others.
