In the Brazilian state of Paraiba, located in Joao Pessoa, there is a shopping mall and event center that is one of a kind. Patrons are immediately greeted with a sense of wonder when they walk into the doors of the Manaira shopping center. Since November of 1989, the center had enjoyed extreme popularity with all who enter, and it is even one of the biggest shopping malls in all of Paraiba. The mall has a variety of activities available to patrons that will help make their visit everything they want it to be.
In addition to the large variety of retail locations, feature stores that sell furniture, jewelry, books, and clothing, Manaira is also host to an extensive food court. Dining options fall into a variety of genres and customers even have access to fine dining establishments.

The gaming station located in Manaira will not disappoint patrons either, with a bowling alley and a fully equipped amusement park. There are over 1,500 gaming stations that allow gamers of any age to enjoy what Manaira has to offer.
One thing that Manaira has that will set it apart from other shopping centers of its type is an event center called Domus Hall. Domus Hall is somewhat of a crown, located on the roof of Manaira. The complex was initially designed to comfortably house up to 10,000 people for concerts, weddings, fairs, and other massive social events. Domus Hall is evenly spread over two stories with privacy suits located on the second floor. This makes it an ideal location for musical artists that are looking for a different type of location to host their concerts. In fact, Domus Hall has gained fame with Brazilian musicians and international musicians because of its state of the art facilities and loyal customer base.
Of course, behind a facility as successful as Manaira there is a CEO that has made it their personal goal to grow it in a thoughtful and meaningful way. Roberto Santiago has been lovingly caring for Manaira since the day that it opened. After obtaining his degree in business administration from the University Center of Joao Pessoa he started spectating land on which to build the beautiful facility. Now, it has become internationally known. Santiago has shown what determination and vision can do for an individual’s success. He has not only added to his own personal accomplishments, but he has helped increase the wealth of the community around Manaira as well. There is no doubt that he will continue to grow Manaira and thrill his loyal patrons.
