Carlsbad, NM - November 2017 - The Carlsbad Department of Development (CDOD) recently attended the annual Texas International Council of Shopping Center's (ICSC) Deal Making show in Dallas. Over 4,200 industry professionals were on hand at this year's event, one of the more successful shows for CDOD in the last decade.
"We have historically had great success at the Texas ICSC show," said Jeff Campbell, director of marketing and business development for the CDOD. "A lot of good deals have had their roots here."
Campbell said that some of the new businesses Carlsbad has gotten in recent years include Lowe's, McAlister's Deli, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Ross, to name a few.
Over 240 companies were exhibiting at the show. The CDOD had its own booth set up to meet with attendees. Campbell, CDOD Executive Director John Waters and Eddy County Commissioner Susan Crockett manned the booth for the duration of the event. Crockett is also the 2017-2018 CDOD President.
