More than 10,000 people attended ICSC's 2015 New York National Convention, held December 6th through the 8th. The 168,000 sq. ft. Javits Center at times felt like a shopping mall at Christmastime, reports Lori Butler, The Carriage Works’ Director of Corporate Accounts.
By all accounts, the increase in attendance in 2015 (over 9,600 in 2014) is good sign for the retail industry. Lori had to agree, based on the productive meetings and all the activity she observed while attending the conference.
The highlight of the event for Lori was keynote speaker - and New York Yankees manager - Joe Girardi.
