Over 150 real estate professionals from the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) attended the 2015 Halton Real Estate Forum: Gear up for Growth, on Tuesday, October 27, 2015. The event provided an opportunity for industrial and commercial realtors, developers and business owners to network and learn about economic and real estate performance trends and development cost competitiveness across Halton and the GTA.
Halton Region is one of the most attractive places in the GTA for businesses to locate. We are a growing community and that’s good for business. We are also committed to delivering high-quality infrastructure, have convenient access to major markets and employers can access one of the most highly-educated workforces in Canada.
This year’s event was held at the Mattamy National Cycling Centre in Milton, set against the stunning backdrop of the Niagara Escarpment. It gave real estate professionals an opportunity to network and hear from Regional staff and industry experts about Halton’s strong economic activity and performance. The session featured several speakers and a panel discussion with industry leaders who provided their analysis and insights on office and industrial development opportunities and why companies are choosing to do business in Halton. Special guest, Steve Bauer, Milton Cycling Academy Head Coach and renowned Canadian professional cyclist, also introduced the venue and provided commentary for a cycling track demo by some of the club’s elite cyclists.
Some highlights from the forum included:
This is the sixth year Halton Region’s Economic Development division has hosted the Real Estate forum.
