The City of Sevierville participated in a huge conference last month to attract retail businesses to the area.
A recruitment team from the City of Sevierville recently went to the International Council of Shopping Center‘s RECon Conference in Las Vegas, a global convention for the shopping center industry which provides networking, deal making and educational opportunities for retail real estate professionals from around the world. The annual conference has an attendance greater than 34,000 people, including representatives from major retail, hospitality, entertainment, development and investment businesses. Sevierville was one of more than 1,000 exhibitors.
Sevierville was represented at RECon by City Administrator Russell Treadway; Planning and Development Director Pam Caskie; Convention Center Sales Coordinator Kelly DeBord; and Sevier County Economic Development Council Director Allen Newton and Assistant Director Emily Whaley.
The team focused on attracting new retail to the Sevierville community and was able to connect with many potential retail clients as well as potential land developers at RECon.
