One of the largest commercial industry events is ICSC’s RECon – a retail conference and leasing event that attracts approximately 35,000 developers, investors and brokers to Las Vegas each year – and NAR will be there. Located in the Leasing Mall, NAR’s booth is available to members with table space you can book for client meetings, to rest your feet, or to connect with NAR’s Commercial staff team. Access the booking schedule online at bit.ly/2014icsc or email Jorge Rivera, Marketing & Communications Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NAR conducts various surveys throughout the year, specific to commercial members – to gather your feedback and perspective. Make your voice heard by participating when these emails arrive in your inbox. Congratulations to Matt Bradley, from Front Royal, VA, for being the lucky respondent who won a $250 gift card for completing the recent survey on this publication. Overall, we heard from over 1,300 of you – look for new features in future issues as we implement your great suggestions. We’re always listening at NARCommercial@realtors.org.
