The free event is by invitation only and will be held Wednesday, February 12, 5:30-7:30 pm at the Ritz Carlton Charlotte, 201 East Trade Street.
This year’s panelists come from a variety of fields and will discuss the market from differing perspectives in order to give attendees a holistic, overarching view of the coming year. They are: Dr. John Connaughton, professor of financial economics at UNC Charlotte and director of the Babson Capital/UNC Charlotte Economic Forecast (http://belkcollege.uncc.edu/
“We feel that this event is unique in Charlotte because it brings together economists, bankers and real estate professionals representing all market areas to create an all-encompassing picture of both the Charlotte economy and its commercial real estate market,” said GreerWalker Partner Jonathan McLester. “In addition, because the attendees also come from diverse fields, this event has become a key networking event for all members of the Charlotte business community.”
“We are proud to co-host this annual event with our friends at GreerWalker,”
