Consolo Leads Media Panel at NYC Real Estate Expo, Friday November 5th

Cocktails and Conversations about Real Estate
…and the Fourth Estate
Consolo, Mann and Alexander Lead Lively Dialogue on Media and Publicity
At NYC Real Estate Expo, Friday, November 5th, 4-5:30 p.m. at Marriott Marquis
Preeminent retail real estate consultant Faith Hope Consolo, Chairman of Prudential Douglas Elliman's Retail Group, will be joined by magazine publisher Jeff Mann and publicist Linda Alexander for a special roundtable, "Media & You," at the NYC Real Estate Expo, Friday, November 5th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, 1535 Broadway, between 44th and 45th Streets. Presented as an informal discussion over cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, the session is being held in the Carnegie Room, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

     Well-regarded in their respective fields, the three participants have been actively involved with media for decades. Ms. Consolo, who authors the famous Faith Report, as well as The Faithful Shopper blog on the Huffington Post and monthly columns in several publications, including Mr. Mann's retail-focused magazine, is a sought after source for reporters worldwide; known as much for her candor, as her comprehensive knowledge about retail, fashion and real estate. Mr. Mann is the founder and President of Mann Publications, publisher of The Mann Report, Mann Retail Report, Mann Building Report, Mann Residential, Fashion Mannuscript, Mann on the Street and Mann About Town. Considered a force in real estate and fashion, his monthly publications are read industry-wide and enjoyed by tens of thousands of professionals. Ms. Alexander, President of Alexander Marketing Corp., founded her boutique public relations firm in 1998, following award-winning careers as a writer, editor and columnist that included stints at several prominent real estate industry publications. 

     "At this forum, we will share information that is valuable for both business people and reporters," said Ms. Consolo. "Understanding the collective mindset of media is crucial. Reporters, editors and producers are always looking for information and ideas. Whether we're part of the research or the subject of a piece, they count on people like us to work with them for background and details."

     Added Mr. Mann, "My magazines provide snapshots of the industries they focus on, as opposed to investigative exposés and dailies. But whether a publication is news-driven or business-oriented, media is all about delivering information. When people know how to work with us, they tend to get better ink and we get stronger stories."

     The NYC Real Estate Expo is geared exclusively towards professionals in real estate and related industries. More than 160 exhibitors are participating in the daylong event and panels are being run from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
