Register today for the Miami-Dade County Retail Bus Tour!

“This is our third year doing The Retail Bus Tour as a Vendor. On our 1st Tour we landed business with Redevco Property Management and we continue to be their Electric Company. This is to mention only one of the new customers that we have gotten from the Retail Bus Tour.”

 

“I have been on the Retail Bus Tour in South FL and Atlanta and couldn’t recommend it more. There is no other way I could see the number of locations I see in these markets in one day AND have the added benefit of networking with other industry leaders at the same time. The Retail Bus Tour is fun, it’s informative and you won’t find another venue like it.”

 

“The Retail Bus Tour was a great experience and I would recommend it to all other brokers so they learn more about their markets and create new relationships and opportunities for future business.”

 

“I just completed a 10-year bank lease that was initiated during last year’s Retail Bus Tour. Needless to say, these Tours have been an incredible value to me and my business!”

 

“We have closed 2 deals that began on The Retail Bus Tour and have planted the seeds for others. This event is a huge value – worth every penny!”

“After attending the last Retail Bus Tour, I met a broker for the first time and only 4 weeks later, I had a lease signed by his retail client at one of my centers! I cannot think of a better use of my time for networking and marketing retail properties.”
