The retail climate is hot at ICSC 2017 – New York Deal Making, as retail industry experts gather to discuss navigating a somewhat unknown but definitely expanding frontier. Even this year’s conference is expanding – attendance, exhibitor space and CRE technology have all expanded at the Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center to help retailers build brand loyalty, grow revenue and empower the next generation…all in less than 3 days.
According to Shopping Centers Today magazine, ICSC’s vice president of global trade expositions, Timothy McGuinness, reports that “attendance is expected to top 11,000 setting a conference record…and has essentially doubled in size over the past three years.” Expect to rub elbows with retailers as well as capital markets experts at the JLL Booth #1635. Check out a map of all the booths here.
If you can’t make it to the Javitz Center, ICSC members will have ongoing access to attendee lists securely online and non-members will have access for 30 days after the event, so don’t miss this opportunity to network.
Also, be sure to check out the hour-long professional development workshops offered that include Technologies Disrupting CRE Today, Emerging Trends in Specialty Retail and Win-Win Co-Tenancy Provisions for Tenants and Landlords to ensure you have the cutting-edge tools to navigate the current trade terrain.
ICSC is celebrating its 60th year, with over 70,000 members who continue to enrich our communities and civic and social lives worldwide through retail real estate. Stay prepared for the expanding environment of CRE retail in NYC at JLL New York and JLL Retail.
