The Brookline team was happy to be back among the over 37,000 attendees and miles of displays at this year’s International Council of Shopping Centers event in Las Vegas: RECon 2018. 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.
Crowds were large no matter where your business took you this year. Seminars were full, booths and walkways were bustling, and sadly the lines for tasty giveaways were long.
The conference was a success nonetheless. Brookline were pleased to immerse themselves in such an active environment filled with opportunity. We’d like to extend a “Thank You” to those who took time to meet or exchange some knowledge at any point during our stay.
ICSC does an incredible job putting RECon together, as well as many other events around the country, and internationally. Read more about them here.
