Coffee and Conversations is ULI BC’s monthly early morning coffee networking event, where all real estate professionals can drop in to meet other like-minded colleagues, further their contact base, and share thoughts and ideas about industry issues that we are all so passionate about. Developers, builders, architects, urban planners, engineers, acquisition officers, brokers, mortgage professionals, appraisers, students – all real estate focused professionals…this networking event is for you! Open to ULI members and non-members. This event is free to attend for members, $5 for non-members. Registration is required in both circumstances.
This month we are delighted to have Mackenzie Biggar, VP of Development at QuadReal, join us for a coffee and conversation! The topic will be “High Profile Development Projects and Partnerships”. This will be followed by a Q&A. Feel free to bring any question that you have for Mackenzie about her work, projects, or professional life. Alternatively, you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will select a few as part of our discussion.
