NAIOP Maryland, BOMA, CREW, SIOR, ULI & more to gather
at Baltimore Museum of Industry

BALTIMORE, MD (October 4, 2010) – More than 400 professionals involved with the local commercial real estate sector are expected to gather at the “All Industry Night,” a networking event scheduled for Thursday, October 14  — from 5:30 pm to 8 pm — at the Baltimore Museum of Industry,  located at 1415 Key Highway in Baltimore. 

 The seven groups involved with the “All Industry Night” include: NAIOP Maryland, which is coordinating the event; the Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Baltimore (BOMA); Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Baltimore; the Maryland Appraisal Institute; the Maryland Association of Realtors; the Maryland/District of Columbia/Northern Virginia Chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) and the Baltimore District Council of the Urban Land Institute (ULI).

“‘All Industry Night’ represents a once-a-year opportunity to strengthen existing or develop new business relationships with local professionals engaged in all aspects of commercial real estate,” stated Robert Bavar, President of NAIOP Maryland and Vice President of Bavar Properties Group. “The informal environment and expected large crowd will be extremely conducive to establishing excellent networking contacts,” he added. 

 “Rather than compete with one another with the organization of several different events, we believe one networking night will collectively serve the best interests of all seven real estate groups,” explained Karl Lehmann, President of SIOR and Senior Vice President with Preston Partners. “This will be the can’t-miss event of the fall season,” he added.    

NAIOP is the nation’s leading professional trade association for industrial, office, commercial and mixed-use real estate. NAIOP Maryland has more than 330 members involved in land development, brokerage finance, law, architecture and engineering.
