Register For Chicago Real Estate Conferences to Save

May 08, 2011

The “who’s who” of the real estate and property management fields will converge in Chicago on May 10 and 11 for two important events. Then, Chicago real estate movers and shakers will get together May 18 to schmooz.

First, information on the first two.

Buildex Chicago is a trade show and conference for property and facility managers, building owners and operators, architects, designers and real estate professionals.

The event will feature more than 135 exhibits from industry partners who offer products, services and technologies that can improve the efficiency and enhance the performance of all types of real estate.

The Illinois Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council is partnering with Buildex to offer three educational programs:

*May 10, 1 to 2 p.m.: Greening Your Aging Mechanical Systems: Smart Things to do in an Older Building

*May 10, 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.: Case Studies of Leading Edge Green Retrofits for Older Buildings: What Can You Practically Do?

*May 11, 9 to 10 a.m.: Develop a Sustainability Plan for Your Building: How to Engage Your Tenants and Investors

As an added bonus, the Building Owners and Managers Association of Chicago (BOMA/Chicago) annual trade show will be held at the same time as Buildex Chicago to give participants a show within a show.

This event brings together exhibitors who offer products and services for building managers and operators.

There will also be prize giveaways, including iPads, TVs, Cubs tickets, $2,500 in cash and more. Bring a business card to enter.

It appears that if you register for these events online, you can get a complimentary pass. If you register on site, you must do it in the lobby of the Merchandise Mart, and it will cost you $25.
