icsc idea exchange 2018

Another ICSC Idea Exchange is in the books!

With nearly 1,000 CRE professionals, related service vendors, and municipalities in attendance, this was one of the Southern California Idea Exchange’s biggest gatherings ever.

This year’s Idea Exchange saw a look, new location, and a leap in attendance + exhibitor participation over last year’s go-around. Now that ICSC’s Western Division Conference has found a new home at the Los Angeles Convention Center, ICSC organizers chose to relocate the annual Southern California Idea Exchange to the Anaheim Convention Center. Just a block over from Downtown Disney, the convention center looms over the back side of Disney’s California Adventure theme park.

And with 870+ pre-registered (a 300+ attendee jump over last year’s tally of 520) and 120 exhibitors (30 more than last year’s 90 total exhibitors) clearly, the change of scenery was a positive shift!

As usual, CBM exhibited at the event, hosting the table you see above. And our talented team of industry-leading retail leasing agents + property managers were on in hand in force, meeting and greeting all comers.

If we didn’t see year this year, hopefully, we’ll catch the next time around. Stay tuned!
