The Beltway Does Vegas
We had some jitters, but our Bisnow Beltway Bash at the big annual retail expo in Las Vegas came off last night, thanks to the support of 630 of you wonderful folks who turned out. (We know the exact number because hotel security stood at our rope with a counter—Vegas does not miss a financial beat.)
Making the Bisnow party official: DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, former Mayor Adrian Fenty, and Newark, NJ, Mayor Ras Baraka. (Note to Mitchell Schear, second from left: You're almost official.)
Avison Young CEO Mark Rose and his daughter Marissa.
Skanska’s Michael Spellman and Streetsense's Jeff and Cammy Pollack, Tracy Revis, Bruce Leonard and Nick Page.
Cohn Reznick’s Joyce Price and Adam Kleeman, Alexander & Dochter’s Matthew Alexander, Charm City Concierge’s Tina Urquhart, the Peterson Cos’ Jim Mertz and Mark Menick, Federal Realty's Ralph Ours, and General Land’s Mike Carroll in front.
