“The Greatest Show on Earth” 2017 Bus Tour event was a huge success last month. The event showcased a mix of 41 industrial, office and retail projects that were recently completed, under construction or planned for future development. 6 buses that were sponsored by NAIOP members followed the same route for an approximate 3 hour tour.
This year’s Bus Tour was the most prolific one yet since resuming the event post-recession. Registered attendees increased from 294 to 322 year over year and we added 10 more properties to the tour. Our main goals for this event is to showcase the exciting new developments for our members and to generate awareness about the robust development happening in our market. By all standards, the event exceeded our goals.
This year’s theme and new venue at Silverton Hotel Casino in the Veil Pavilion was well received by the attendees. The room provided an intimate and engaging environment for our sponsors to present their businesses and it proved a great networking setting for industry professionals. Additionally, the accessibility of the venue delivered an increase in attendance for the after party at the tour’s conclusion.
We sincerely thank the NAIOP Board of Directors, the Bus Tour Committee members and all of the NAIOP member sponsors and advertisers who make this event possible. Without your time, efforts and resources, we would not be able to put on such an important event.
Looking forward to another successful Bus Tour next year!
