Community Development

Turn access into action.

Retail real estate centers contribute more than $120 billion annually in sales taxes to state and local governments. Increased economic bandwidth is just one way the industry positively impacts a community. Our mission is to pave the way for sustainable retail development to help improve the quality of life in local communities.

We’re good at introductions

The P3 (Public-Private-Partnership) Retail program provides an opportunity to connect with the nation’s largest network of public and private sector professionals while attending ICSC events such as idea exchanges and regional Deal Making conferences. Our program provides the resources and contacts needed to turn ideas into successful community development partnerships.

Gain access to invaluable resources that will help you become a successful deal maker at ICSC events.
