Top New York City dealmakers were in Las Vegas over the weekend, prepping for the start of the world’s largest retail convention, the International Council of Shopping Centers’ RECon 2015, which runs Sunday through Wednesday.

Sunday afternoon, Jeff Sutton, Robert Knakal, Simon Ziff, Bobby Cayre and dozens of others were backslapping and taking in the sun at the pools and cabanas of the Wynn Las Vegas hotel. Later that night, thousands of attendees headed to the Las Vegas Strip for an evening of parties.

The Real Deal snapped pictures of retail players such as Robert Futterman at his firm’s bash at Cabo Wabo overlooking the strip. There, we met up with Nest Seekers International’s Ryan Serhant, one of the few residential brokers to dare step foot in the retail hotbed. We also chatted with Peter Braus at the Lee & Associates poolside event at the LUX Pool at the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, and Chase Welles at the Shopping Center Group’s large event at the Ballroom of the Four Seasons Hotel.
