If you are seeing more familiar faces on the floor of the International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual New York National Deal Making Conference this year, it’s not your imagination.
The 29 brokerage firms that registered four or more attendees this year are sending a total of 404 individuals to the event, or 60 more than last year. Total attendance from a wider group of New York City-based companies — including owners, tenants and law firms — rose from 1,049 in 2013 to 1,135 this year, according to The Real Deal‘s analysis of data from the ICSC website.
The brokerage RKF, led by CEO Robert Futterman, has the highest number of registered attendees, with 39, up from 34 last year. Meridian Capital Group, No. 4 on the list, added seven attendees, bumping its total to 31. Meridian said it was sending more people because the firm is expanding its business brokering loans related to stores.
