Last week the CENTURY 21 Commercial team attended ICSC’s RECon in Las Vegas, the global retail real estate convention. RECon provides networking, deal making and educational opportunities for retail real estate professionals from around the world and is an iconic event in the retail real estate industry.
This year’s conference was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center and featured keynote speakers including best-selling author, Malcolm Gladwell, former co-host of ABC’s Good Morning America, Joan Lunden and Chairman & CEO of Limited Brands, Inc., Leslie H. Wexner.
For their inaugural venture, the CENTURY 21 Commercial team maintained a strong presence on the convention floor with a professionally designed booth which included several meeting spaces. Nearly 30 members of the CENTURY 21 Commercial team manned the booth, networking with retail clients, investors and property developers. Pictured above, left to right: Mike Miedler, Jim Resha, Heather Francine, Randy Workman, Petr Vomastek, Anasua Sanyal, Jenny Dashio, Greg Sexton and Jim Kelsey.
The team also hosted a private reception at the conference for attendees to network, meet clients and close deals.
Adding to the excitement were legendary U.S. Soccer players Brandi Chastain and Kristine Lilly, who met with reception guests and signed autographs. Combined, Brandi and Kristine have played for the U.S. National team for 30+ years, and have played in 6 Olympics and 8 FIFA World Cup soccer tournaments.
Larry Harbour, Manager of the Commercial Division at CENTURY 21 Judge Fite, testifies, “This year’s RECon was one of the most productive ones I’ve ever attended. We expect to close a number of deals due to our attendance at the show and being able to get in front of the right people.” He continued, “Being able to meet some of our professionals from across the country for the first time—and continuing to work with those that have been with us before—was invaluable.”
The CENTURY 21 Commercial team shared the RECon floor with other powerhouse businesses such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, McDonald’s and Subway as well as other commercial real estate brokerages such as CBRE, Jones Lang La Salle, Marcus and Millichap and CBC.
