Commercial real estate professionals and the general public are invited to the breakfast meeting on Tuesday, November 8, 7:30 to 9 a.m., at the Belo Mansion, 2101 Ross Avenue, Dallas, TX 75201.
Norm Hitzges of Sportsradio 1310 The Ticket will moderate this panel to discuss the big business of sports in the region.

We’ll address the importance of post-season action, the influence of mega-events such as the Super Bowl, NBA All Star Game and the World Series, the ripple effect of first-class venues, and the intangible benefits of sports teams beyond income, property values, jobs and taxes.”
