Promoting MVT CID Economic Development Opportunities at ICSC

Access to quality retail is vital to the MVT CID’s emergence as a “destination of choice” to anyone looking to live, work, do business and entertain in DC. That’s why the MVT CID once again attended the International Council of Shopping Centers’ (ICSC)  Mid-Atlantic Conference & Deal Making event at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor. This annual event is a great opportunity for owners, developers, retailers, brokers, lenders, municipalities, property asset managers and product and service providers to gather under one roof to exhibit, make deals and form successful business partnerships. For the expo, the MVT CID co-located in the booth of the  Washington DC Economic Partnership  — one of 140 trade show exhibitors — to promote neighborhood opportunities to retailers searching for attractive locations to launch or expand their businesses. MVT CID attendance at ICSC two years ago helped lead to a successful lease execution with Tropical Smoothie Café, one of the MVT CID’s newest retail offerings, opening in March 2017.
