The commercial real estate is buzzing this week from the positive energy at ICSC RECON14 in Las Vegas, NV.
ICSC RECON24, commercial real estate’s largest convention event of the year, brought in a record-breaking crowd of over 33,300 attendees to the 2014 show. Industry leaders in the retail sector came together to discuss industry trends and hot topics.
The three day conference included sessions on pertinent commercial real estate happenings including property management and leasing, facilities and property maintenance, redevelopment, and marketing in the digital age in this industry – to name a few.
Thought leaders at ICSC RECON14 used these sessions to discuss prominent themes in retail leasing for 2014 – and ideas for the future. Reports claim there was a more positive feeling in the sessions at RECON14 than in the pre-recession years and stories of growth from retailers including WalMart, and Sprouts grocery helped set that tone. Overall there are signs of increasing market demand for the retail sector.
