Each year, attendees look forward to participating in the Investment Marketing Session–a great place to do business! We are joined by Jon England, SEC, CCIM and Wes Dingler, SEC as the moderators for the June 6 session. During breakfast, conference attendees can choose from a number of round table discussions on timely topics. 

Our keynote speakers, Brian McKenzie, owner of Finger Lakes Distillery and Cory Moscato, owner of Lockhouse Distillery, will discuss the booming distillery business. Learn about these rapidly growing businesses and the specialized real estate they occupy. Also, taste test a variety of spirits made right here in New York state!

For education, there are several great options for attendees to choose from. On Monday, June 5, CCIM will sponsor “Splitting Profits in Commercial Real Estate” with instructor Jeff Englestad, Ph.D., FRICS, CCIM.

Support our Veterans 

During the conference, we will be collecting food items for the Central New York Veteran’s Outreach Center (CNYVOC) in Utica, so please join us by bringing non-perishable food items to the conference. 

CNYVOC is in the process of creating a resourceful, one stop facility in Utica for veterans residing throughout Central New York. When complete, this facility would offer, among other services, transitional housing for homeless veterans with permanent housing for disabled and elderly veterans, plus a wide variety of other services.
