WDCEP Prepares for 2013 ICSC RECon

The WDCEP is preparing for another meeting-packed trade mission to the world’s largest retail conference, the 2013 International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) RECon, where the WDCEP has represented the District of Columbia for the past 15 years. ICSC is a trade association for the shopping center industry with over 44,000 members including developers, retailers, marketing specialists, investors, lenders, and shopping center owners.

In the past, ICSC conferences have been a key venue for deal-making to attract retailers to the District of Columbia and have led to deals with Target, Harris Teeter, Apple, and others. This year, the delegation will be focusing on finding retailers to fill the available spaces in high priority areas, including St. Elizabeth’s East Campus Gateway Pavilion, Walter Reed, The Strand Theater, and the Great Street corridors to name a few.

Joining the delegation with WDCEP will be Mayor Gray, Deputy Mayor Hoskins, Councilmembers, and other city partners. During the conference, site selection teams will be on hand to present the entire portfolio of major real estate developments in the District to retailers, as well as give virtual GIS tours of the city. Through the Retail Site Search tool on WDCEP’s website, retailers will be able to view over 400 available retail sites found throughout all of the neighborhoods in the District.
