Don’t Miss These 10 Hot CRE Events in 2018
Earlier this year, we told you about some of the top conferences for commercial real estate professionals to attend. Followers of CREtech are aware of our many different meetings and events that we hold throughout the year all over the country.
Our big annual event in NYC had record-breaking attendance last year as did our San Francisco meeting. This year, we added Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, and L.A.
We’re almost halfway through the year and there is still time to catch some of the hottest CRE events in 2018. Here are 10 of the hottest events left to attend this year:
#1: CREtech Los Angeles
Los Angeles is seeing renewed interest in its exurbs in commercial real estate. Red tape has been a stumbling block but new private-public partnerships are sparking new massive developments in and around L.A. CREtech will be there coming soon and is a great place to network and learn more about how to get in on the action.
#2: Industrial Leader I.CON on Industrial
The first week of June, I.CON in conjunction with NAIOP will be hosting the ICON ’18: The Industrial Conference in New Jersey covering supply chain logistics in industrial and e-commerce trends among other topics.
We’ll be in San Francisco on June 21 the following week co-hosting CREtech San Francisco.
#3: Network at the Annual BOMA International
One of the best reasons to attend the BOMA International Annual Conference & Expo in Texas this June 23 – 26 is for the networking opportunities.
