The unprecedented impact of COVID-19 has had a severe influence on conferences and events around the globe. As many organizations are forced to cancel or postpone their major annual events, commercial real estate professionals are forced to seek virtual opportunities to network, execute deals and attend educational events.
The CRE industry’s motivation to continue business in isolation has caused virtual adoption to accelerate quicker than ever before. And, while it may be some time before we can enjoy handshakes and happy hours with colleagues, there are still opportunities for commercial real estate pros to stay engaged, informed and connected with industry peers.
We’ve put together a list of virtual conferences and ongoing webinar series that can help you stay connected as we adjust to the new normal.
CREW is hosting a weekly Virtual Conversation Corner to help its Members stay informed and engaged. CREW Members can access the series for free by logging into their CREW Network account. Follow CREW on social media for updates and upcoming Virtual Conversation Corner events.
