Our commitment to your safety

We have experienced the enthusiasm of returning to live in-person events this year, having safely and successfully hosted more than 10,000 executives to date. While we are thrilled to convene together to propel growth within CRE, COVID-19 remains a worldwide concern and Bisnow is committed to practicing safe protocols at our events. You can expect the following:

 

  • Facial coverings will be recommended by all staff & attendees, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be made available at the door.
  • Temperature checks will be conducted at entry.
  • Attendance at the event will be capped and no tickets will be sold at the door.
  • Contact tracing procedures will be employed for any reported exposure.
  • Socially distanced seating will be available in the main event space.
  • Enhanced sanitization protocols will be adhered to throughout the event space including regularly disinfecting surfaces throughout the event and hand sanitizer provided to all attendees.

 

As local regulations and guidance evolve, the CRE industry continues to lead the way forward. We look forward to gathering safely to do what we do best: network, connect, and engage to do more business. We look forward to hosting you soon.

  • How the cities along the 121 Corridor are incentivizing, development and business expansions? 
  • What’s the key to making a market “ready for investment”? 
  • What role will technology play in supporting the long-term growth of the metroplex? 
  • How is Collin County addressing challenges in education, infrastructure and affordability to ensure the 121 Corridor and surrounding areas maintain a competitive edge in the corporate relocation hunger games?
  • The term “smart city” gets thrown around a lot. What exactly does that mean and how does a city become one?

 

Who You'll Meet: This program is a must-have for office, retail, hospitality and restaurant brokers and tenants looking for the next hot spots along the 121 Corridor, not to mention, architects, general contractors and CRE professionals looking for the next deals and dollars to emerge from large tract development
