ICSC RECon 2012: A Photo Recap

As always, North Texas had an incredibly showing at ICSC’s RECon 2012 event, with virtually every major player well represented. Along with the brokerages, developers, and ownership groups, Dallas-Fort Worth retailers were out in full force, including 7-Eleven, GameStop, Genghis Grill, and Sally Beauty Supply.

It appeared that Texas had the most economic development groups on hand; local participants included the City of Dallas (which welcomed officials from Allen and other North Texas cities), Forney, Grapevine, Hurst-Euless-Bedford, Little Elm, and Terrell.

Here’s a sampling of other DFW participants: Bright Realty, CBRE, CNL Commercial, Colliers International, Cushman & Wakefield, Cypress Equities, Falcon Realty Advisors, Henry S. Miller, Howard Hughes Corp.
