Description: Commercial real estate professionals from around the Metro-Detroit area participated in another successful night of speed networking. Guests engaged in a fast-paced and unique style of networking that cannot be matched by the average networking event.
The event took place on Wednesday, June 29th, 2016, from 5:30-8:00pm at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. Over 160 leaders from various sectors of the real estate world, including developers, title companies, insurance agencies, restoration businesses, bankers, and many more, supported the event.
Event was sponsored by Signal Restoration Services and PuroClean, our industry exclusivity sponsor, Title Connect, with a keynote by Mr. Moddie Turay, Executive Vice President of Real Estate and Financial Services for the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation.
“I felt this way last year and I will say it again, it’s the most productive, well organized event of its kind. Your outreach is extremely impressive. You are able to fill a room with some of the most influential people in the business” said Angela Thomas, agent and broker, Signature Associates of Southfield.
Commercial real estate developers included: Agree Realty, Alrig Usa, Beztak, Barbat Holdings Broder and Sachse, CORE Partners, Group 10 Management, NAI Farbman, Pattah Development, Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust, Schostak, Singh, The Surnow Company, and several of the area’s top legal firms also partnered with the event, including Clark Hill and Varnum Law.
Chad Howard, Chief Operating Officer of Signal Restoration Services, said, “The Annual Speed Networking Event was a great opportunity to connect with potential customers and vendors in the Metro Detroit real estate industry. The format of the event was extremely beneficial as it promotes interaction amongst all attendees. In the few days since the event, my company has already realized the benefit and value of our attendance and participation. I’d like to thank Derek for not only putting this all together, but more importantly for the tireless work that he does for the Detroit business community.”
Professionals had four minutes to introduce themselves, give a brief elevator pitch for their product or service, and then, at the signal, rotate to the next professional. The short time encouraged guests to stay on point with every pitch, which left little room for small talk and more focus on work topics.
