In March, the Business Record hosted four video roundtables, each on a different segment of real estate and development in Greater Des Moines: Office, retail, industrial and land. Senior Staff Writer Kent Darr then wrote summaries of each discussion and put together Q&A style stories for our Annual Real Estate Magazine. The magazine was distributed at our April 12 CRE Trends and Issues Forum and inserted in the April 28 issue of the Business Record.

This Video roundtable focused on retail and featured the following panelists.

- Rich Eychaner, owner, Eychaner Properties
- Colleen Johnson, vice president, CBRE|Hubbell Commercial
- Christopher Stafford, director and senior vice president, NAI Optimum
