2013 RECon Las Vegas ICSC – International Council of Shopping Centers.


It’s that time of year once again to head to Las Vegas for ICSC RECon 2013.

For those of you not involved in retail. WOW……. are you missing one hell of a show.

The scale is amazing. The booths are multi million dollar palaces. The (duck breast soup OMG) food is indulgent. The (sorry mom)”drinks are ever flowing and the parties……uh I can’t really say.

Oh and yes the deal making and networking are unprecedented.

Take a quick look at the Prezi from ICSC.

Here is the official description of RECon 2013.

RECon is the global convention for the shopping center industry and provides networking, deal making and educational opportunities for retail real estate professionals from around the world.  With over 30,000 attendees and 1,000 exhibitors it is the largest industry convention, making it an unparalleled opportunity to do a year’s worth of business in just four days!  If you are looking to meet retailers to discuss new or existing leases in your centers, view the latest industry products and services that are critical to your business, attend over 30 educational sessions or find the next deal, then you need to attend RECon.

It’s all that and so much more.

Yes I will be doing presentations on Sunday and Monday at the #iTechLounge. ( Like I won’t blatantly promote myself …really. )

I will be trying to meet as many people as possible so please don’t be shy and if you feel the need my email is duke@42floors.com

This year is going to be the greatest ever. Can’t Wait!

BTW here is a video of me from last year at ICSC Recon………The irony! 🙂
