Breakfast Networking Event

January CREWsDay
Wednesday, January 27, 2016


CREW CT – The Real Estate Exchange presents:
From Hartford to Enfield:
What Will The Next Project Be?

Join us for a Panel Discussion on Economic Development of this Critical Area

Stretching in Connecticut from Enfield south to New Haven, the I-91 Corridor is already a significant economic driver in our state. As expansion continues, join CREW for a compelling discussion about future development efforts, particularly in the Hartford region, from those “in the know.”

  • Which industries are the drivers of commercial real estate and
     development in this region?
  • How will public transportation and airport service expansion
     affect development?
  • How will traffic be managed as development occurs and will
     this affect projects?
  • What will be the impact if a casino is located along the corridor?
