Exhibitors are keen to get to business at ICSC’s New York Deal Making, being held Dec. 4–6 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center. The event has evolved into one of the most important yearly retail events over the past several years, they say. With about 10,000 attendees and 530 exhibitors, the New York show is smaller than RECon, in Las Vegas, but it has nonetheless outgrown its status as a regional convention and taken on national and international importance.
