What is the NextGen Conference and Why Should I Attend?
The NextGen Conference is ABOUT the Future of Retail.
The NextGen Conference is FOR the Future Decision Makers in Retail Real Estate. The Future of Retail is High Street & Urban Locations, Luxury Retailers, and International Appeal.
Today, Miami is at the forefront of the Future of Retail with more growth in these areas than any other market in the United States. There are two enclosed, luxury malls underway which are located only blocks away from each other at Swire’s Brickell City Centre and Taubman/ Forbes’ Miami World Center. Just north of these exciting projects Dacra and GGP are developing the Miami Design District, a revolutionary development in partnership with Louis Vuitton’s brands to congregate the most elite and high-end luxury brands in a ground-up neighborhood development. And just across the bridge in South Beach, The Lincoln Road Mall has evolved as the country’s top high-street retail location outside of Manhattan as brands compete for space to launch new flagship locations. And all of these are located within just a few miles of two of the top 5 performing malls in the US. Miami is the top international destination in the country and has grown from being a gateway from Latin America to a gateway from all of Europe and Asia. The Future of Retail is happening in Miami right now… you need to see it.
This year’s NextGen Conference will focus on The Future of Retail and provide EXPOSURE, ACCESS AND DEVELOPMENT for the Future Decision Makers of our industry
EXPOSURE – This is not your parents’ ICSC conference. We are going to get out of the conference room, away from the panels and speakers and visit these exciting retail projects IN PERSON. These projects are the Future of Retail and you will get a chance to see them, experience them, shop, eat and drink at them.
ACCESS – We will have the people involved in making these projects happen on hand to talk about what they are doing, how they are doing it, why it’s happening now, and where you’ll see it next. Additionally, the conference will feature intimate opportunities for mentoring and interaction with some of the most experienced leaders in the industry. And finally, the conference will cap off with ICSC NextGen’s Inaugural 4 Under 40, which will feature the best and brightest among young executives making a name for themselves today.
DEVELOPMENT – This conference is designed for people on executive career tracks and will feature speakers and topics designed to help you continue building your personal skillset to become the decision makers of tomorrow.
