Colliers International | Pittsburgh Hosts Colliers Regional Meeting at PNC Park
Commercial Real Estate professionals from several Colliers International offices convened in Pittsburgh last week for two days of networking, meetings, and presentations. The Pittsburgh Regional Alliance, Civil & Environmental Consultants, and Oxford Development sponsored this inaugural Colliers Regional Meeting at PNC Park.
Brokers and service line leaders from Colliers International travelled from California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia, Washington D.C., and across Pennsylvania on Wednesday for dinner and networking on the rooftop deck at the Blue Line Grille, directly across the street from Consol Energy Center.
“The Colliers Regional Conference brought together market leaders, brokers and service line experts to strengthen internal relationships and expand our ability to service clients, whether they are building owners, large corporations, law firms, banks or health care institutions across the state and throughout the region,” explained Joseph Fetterman, Executive Vice President of Strategic Initiatives for Colliers International offices in Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware.
Thursday began with breakfast in the Lexus Club and a Pittsburgh-themed trivia contest and presentation by the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance. Industrial, Office, Retail, and Investment break-out sessions followed, which included collaboration meetings; presentations on energy, healthcare, ADA compliance, corporate solutions, and capital markets; and a panel discussion from some of the area’s largest office users.
Fetterman added, “The highlight was a panel of Pittsburgh based clients who spoke to challenges they face and initiatives they have underway for their respective real estate portfolios.”
“The Colliers International Regional Meeting was a huge success from many perspectives, especially corporate service business development and broker-to-broker networking,” commented Gregg Broujos, Managing Director & Founding Principal of Colliers International | Pittsburgh. “We were also able to show off our great city and the presentation by the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance was an incredibly valuable resource in showing our out-of-town brokerage professionals why they should bring their corporate clients to Pittsburgh.”
The long day ended with a view of the downtown skyline from the bleacher seats at PNC Park as the Pirates took on the Nationals and an amazing display of Zambelli Fireworks.
“The Pittsburgh Pirates were so gracious with their venues and everyone one of their staff members showed the utmost professionalism with every detail of the event,” Broujos added. “And the icing on the cake was the Pirates smacking the Nationals around on Thursday night!”
