ICSC Global Retail Real Estate Convention
This past weekend, ICI had the pleasure of joining 37,000 industry professionals at the ICSC Global Real Estate Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. This convention is three action-packed days of deal making and relationship building with professional development workshops and an abundance of networking opportunities.
Thanks to our Director of Business Development, Katie Mulrenin, ICI co-sponsored an incredibly successful networking event. While sitting pool side at the Aria Resort and Casino, attendees were able to connect with new and familiar faces within the real estate development market while enjoying a beautiful atmosphere and the warm sunshine. Thank you to our co-sponsors, ECS, Bluestone Single Tenants, and Cage Engineering, as well as all of the esteemed colleagues who were in attendance Sunday morning.
Tim Jackson, ICI's VP of Operations, accompanied Ms. Mulrenin to the conference. His favorite part of the Convention was combining his passion for ICI with his love for the Vegas sun. Tim and Katie, along with the rest of the ICI team, hope to attend more ISCS events soon!> Read more
