Terra-Petra attends ICSC RECon once again—with 2018 highlights

Retail real estate professionals and developers remained upbeat at RECon 2018, as most (if not all) felt that the “doom and gloom” of previous years is now a thing of the past. Most retailers, owners and developers, it seemed from our own reaching out to attendees on the Expo floor, are continuing to move forward.  This year’s conference fell over the Jewish holiday Shavuot, which may have potentially impacted attendance levels, but ICSC said that ReCon attendance was on par with previous years.

Read about some of highlights that real estate professionals shared during the second day on the showroom floor on www.nreionline.com.
