Based in San Diego, CA, Elliot Feuerstein is an officer at Mira Mesa Shopping Center. A developer with decades of experience at creating shopping centers worldwide, Elliot Feuerstein was celebrated in 2019, along with others, during the first Asia Pacific awards by the International Council of Shopping Centers. Although it opened less than a year before this event, the Thai shopping center ICONSIAM earned four of these awards.
The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Asia Pacific awards program took place in Singapore. Of 12 of the awards, the ICSC recognized retail spaces worldwide that provided new experiences for customers and marketed themselves widely throughout the region. The ICSC also used the Best Support to Businesses category at the inaugural awards ceremony to celebrate shopping centers that helped local business reach a wider audience.
Located in Bangkok, ICONSIAM earned awards for Best New Development, Best Support to Businesses, Best Grand Opening, and Best Public Relations. Its expert use of its location and diversity of activities, including luxury shopping options, led to the Best New Development award. The inclusion of a ground-floor space dedicated to showing foods and products across Thailand earned it the Best Support to Business award. The Best Grand Opening and Best Public Relations awards stemmed from ICONSIAM’s grand-opening, including the use of over 1500 drones, and attracted broad attention from the various forms of news media.
