With the holiday season in full swing, most brokers and firms are working on their 2017 budgets. That’s in addition to closing out the year and making holiday travel plans.
But don’t forget, the end of the year is also the perfect time to start thinking about which commercial real estate conferences to attend in 2017. Networking opportunities and continuing education are the main reasons to attend industry conferences, but it’s also a chance to let loose, enjoy a change of scenery, and have a bit of fun with peers you don’t often get to see face-to-face.
It’s advantageous to start planning your travel schedule now for next year’s conferences. By planning early, you’ll benefit from the early-bird registration rates, hotel discounts, and cheaper flights. We know time away from the office can be challenging, but these 10 CRE conferences are worth setting aside the time and budget for in 2017.
