New York City real estate players will have to adjust the schmooze settings on their phones in Las Vegas this year — several of the biggest parties at ICSC have been canceled.

Whether it’s a cautious mood in response to the #MeToo movement, a lack of enthusiasm due to the retail slump, penny-pinching, or simply a return to more intimate corporate bonding, a handful of New York’s real estate firms are not holding large parties this year.

The four-day conference kicks off Sunday and tens of thousands of attendees will arrive in Las Vegas, but many of New York’s retail kings are also staying home due to religious conflicts.

RKF, which in the past has hosted parties at clubs along the strip, is one notable firm not hosting a bash in 2018.

“We are not having a party this year, [we] decided to do small client dinners instead,” an RKF spokesperson said.

Law firm Fried Frank and brokerages Winick Realty Group and Eastern Consolidated also won’t be throwing any parties during the world’s largest retail conference this year.

According to insiders, the main event for New Yorkers this year is Newmark Knight Frank’s party at the Marquee, an event that typically attracts thousands. Other big parties to check out are the Related Companies’ Hudson Yards event at Nobu Villa in Caesars Palace and NY Developers’ party poolside at the Bellagio hotel.

The one major party to move is Cushman & Wakefield’s event, which for years was held at the sedate Four Seasons pool. This year, Cushman has moved the soiree to Intrigue Nightclub in the Wynn hotel.

Real estate players would be wise to remember that the parties are invitation-only, so work the phones early.
