Network marketing – 42nd Annual Event of International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC)

We at the Thomas A. Duke Company know that network marketing is a key component in our strategy to market properties for sale or lease.  Most recently we participated in the Michigan Idea Exchange and Alliance Program held at The Henry Hotel in Dearborn.  This annual event, now in its 42nd year sponsored by the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), is Michigan’s largest retail event of the year.  More than 400 investors, retailers, brokers, developers, public officials, economic developers, and professional service providers attended – all of them looking to do business in southeast Michigan.

ICSC BLogThis year Mark Szerlag showcased 55 of our Retail properties including retail properties for sale or lease and vacant land properties for sale – in southwest Oakland, Livingston and Wayne Counties, making us one of the largest participant in attendance.

While no one is setting any records, the overall industry outlook was very positive.  We heard countless success stories – and told a few of our own.  Many retailers that have overlooked Michigan in the last few years are once again interested in prime locations.

Now we’re working to follow up with all the contacts we made at the programs and make the potential we envisioned there a reality.
