Anyone in real estate knows the power of networking. When you have strong connections with other businesses and professionals in your area, it can cultivate a mutually beneficial relationship.
In New York City, there are a few networking events in September that could be the perfect opportunity for you to meet new people or reconnect with old acquaintances.
In terms of real estate development and investment, Brooklyn and Queens have come a long way in the past 10 years. This forum is designed to keep you in the loop so you know what could be next for these constantly evolving boroughs.
With 13 speakers, an expert panel will explore all different aspects of Brooklyn and Queens. Which neighborhoods are poised for future growth? Are there new transportation or infrastructure updates in the works? How is office development affecting the retail market? These are just a few of the topics that will be covered.
The event runs from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. on September 13th, and includes a networking breakfast, a Brooklyn panel and a Queens panel. If you can make time in your busy schedule for this event, I would recommend it. From what I’ve heard, it is a great way to connect with other industry professionals while expanding your knowledge on relevant topics.
On September 25th from 6:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., YREPNY will be hosting a networking event at the Gem Saloon on Third Avenue (at E. 27th street). Light appetizers will be provided and admission is free of charge.
YREPNY is a not-for-profit organization improving networking and industry knowledge for its members. They also have affiliate chapters in Atlanta, Chicago, Charlotte, Houston, San Francisco and Washington D.C., making it a great organization for any commercial real estate professional looking to meet like-minded professionals.
This event is recommended for beginner and intermediate real estate investors. If you’re trying to learn more about real estate investing while connecting with other industry professionals, this event is a good option. You’re encouraged to wear business professional attire and bring your business cards. The event is at Stout NYC on West 33rd Street from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. on September 18th.
There are different networking events for all the various aspects of real estate. If these options don’t suit your needs, there are still dozens of other events you can find before the end of 2018.
