The International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual New York Deal Making conference kicked off Wednesday, with thousands of brokers, owners and other real estate professionals arriving at the Jacob K. Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side for the first day of the two-day event.

Agents from the top firms as ranked this month by The Real Deal, such as RKF’s Ariel Schuster, Winick Realty Group’s Jeff Winick, Cushman & Wakefield’s Joanne Podell and Newmark Knight Frank’s Jeff Roseman, were looking to find, advance or close deals.

The crowd ebbed and flowed, and brokers speaking with TRD had a hard time deciding if the event was more or less crowded than in prior years. ICSC, for its part, expects about 10,000 attendees will walk the show.

The show comes as retail deals are taking longer to close and are more complex, insiders said.
