Welcome to Jones Lang LaSalle’s ICSC RECon Las Vegas 2012 blog. We invite you to check in with us as we cover the important issues and trends within retail.
The retail industry, as a whole, continues to gradually improve. Vacancies have bottomed for most markets, while rent declines are flattening. Leasing activity is positive and, combined with low supply, should keep things relatively stable.
This year’s conference should be a sustained platform of deliberate and strategic deal-making. Our appointment calendars are jam-packed and we look forward to a dynamic and instructive conference. In my opinion, there are few things more vital than interacting with each other face-to-face as we forge stronger synergistic relationships. As the retail industry evolves to meet changing conditions, we must stay educated about the unique opportunities and challenges facing us in coming years. We anticipate that this year’s attendees will be serious about doing business and building value through strategic partnerships.
Jones Lang LaSalle Retail will have representatives across all facets of our platform: leasing, management, capital markets, retail tenant solutions, research and marketing. As the conference progresses, we will keep you posted on news, insights and expertise from the convention floor. Stay tuned!
