This chapter explores the professionalization of the industry around U.S.-centered “global” conventions and the historical regimes that frame Latin Americans' involvement in the industry. On that note, educational and professional development were two of the most important components of the International Council of Shopping Centers's (ICSC) mission, and were the primary driver for advancing the “science of malling.” ICSC Real Estate Convention's (ReCon) regional meetings promoted the best practices for financing, managing, and running the business. Moreover, for those seeking additional training, the meetings were increasingly complemented by an educational component, including a series of classes on leasing strategies, design and construction, and other topics such as social networking.

Keywords:   professionalization, Latin Americans, International Council of Shopping Centers, ReCon, regional meetings
