Following on the continual successes of the twice annual IAMC Professional Forums, the organizations has been hosting successful local events around the country. Qube Global Software is not only a National Sponsor, but a Founding International Sponsor for the growth and expansion of this industrial corporate real estate focused group.
Hosted by AkzoNobel on July 8, the Chicago event boasted nearly 50 attendees, both existing and prospective IAMC members. Presenters put in an incredible amount of effort into topics relating to effective solutions for surplus properties and industry case studies. The popular ‘get some help’ question and answer session generated exciting discussions and debates, including differing perspectives on succession planning. “The more intimate setting of these smaller forums provides the opportunity to build relationships on a local level, not just on a national scale,” stated Sharon Miller Trackman, Director of Marketing for the Americas. “Educational programming provides real time answers to immediate questions in a specific demographic.”
The membership of IAMC represents a ‘who’s who’ of industrial corporate real estate around the globe. The Chicago local event had representatives from such luminary businesses as Anixter, ExxonMobil, ThermoFisher, Kohler, Newell Rubbermaid AksoNobel. Companies represented in the speaking panels included Brownfield Management Associates, InSite Real Estate, Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Co and Hilco.
