ICSC has always been the biggest trade show amongst all of the trade organizations for commercial real estate. In looking back at my 2009 post, I am definitely more optimistic about this year. It is always good to look back and then look forward. 2007 was the peak with over 50,000 people in attendance. 2009, was well under 30,000 people in attendance. Fast forward to this year, they are expecting over 30,000 people in attendance.
I remember with clarity the attitude for expansion in 2008, 2009 and 2010 was to check back in 2012 and 2013. Well, here we are. I am looking forward to providing a daily update of events of the trade show back to you.
In the meantime, if you are going, let’s meet up! I will either be at our company booth (CPI Booth S56047), CCIM Booth (CCIM Booth – Booth #C1920) or walking the halls or attending some of the education breakout sessions.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Vegas!
