Focus on District Neighborhoods
The Marketing Center has several retail attraction initiatives planned for 2005 including Retail Summits and participation at the Mid-Atlantic International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Idea Exchange and ICSC’s spring convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In March, retail attraction efforts will focus on the Neighborhood Retail Summit. The summit will target potential and existing retailers in the Washington metropolitan area to inform them of retail opportunities in District neighborhoods.
The Marketing Center is planning to partner with e-BIC, developers, the DC Office of Planning and Economic Development, the DC Main Streets program and Community Development Corporations to assist retailers in learning more about retail opportunities in the District’s neighborhoods.
To learn more about retail attraction in the District, contact Keith Sellars, Manager of Retail Development at (202) 661-8684.
