I will definitely attend next year” said Sara Faircloth, Brand Relations Specialist at NBS Commercial Interiors.

Eric Pernie, Broker at Woodward Realty, said, “Thank you  for organizing an amazing event at the Townsend Hotel- The 5th Annual Commercial Real Estate Speed Networking Event. Networking is invaluable with the perpetually changing industries, technology, and overall growth of any business. This event is a huge asset for anyone in business by connecting and building professional relationships.”

Professionals had four minutes to introduce themselves, give a brief 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.
