NEW YORK, March 8, 2011 – The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) is proud to present the 600th Next Generation Program. The conference will take place April 14, 2011 at Metreon in San Francisco, Calif. [Editor’s note: see attached program for full event schedule.]
ICSC’s new groundbreaking Mentor Program will be introduced at this event. Conference attendees will have an opportunity to sign up as either a mentor or mentee to help build relationships with other professionals who share common goals and interests. This program will serve as a catalyst for future industry development. Additionally, eight lucky winners will have the opportunity dine with panelists during one-on-one lunches scheduled within the year.
The conference will feature a panel discussion surrounding the theme, “Post Next Generation.” Moderated by Kurt Utterback, leasing manager for Westfield, this discussion will share the panelist’s perspectives on current retail real estate industry conditions, lessons they have learned from their experiences, and how to maximize success given the current changes to the retail real estate industry.
Additionally, a booth will be set up by Westfield to provide information regarding the future redevelopment plans for the Metreon project.
