For the first time ever, MDG marketed the 2012 Every Building Conference and Expo, known as the commercial real estate industry's premiere professional event. Rotating into Seattle in June, this collaborative meeting of the industry’s best minds included 50 sessions across five education tracks on everything from creating and sustaining high performance buildings to maximizing asset and portfolio performance to high performance leadership. Dana Warren, VP of Federal Reserve at the Bank of Boston commented, "The education here is highly relevant. I get information that I can take back and apply directly to my job. And the speakers are great. You always learn something new every time you come to BOMA. And, on the trade show floor, you’re guaranteed to find enough new products and services that will save you more money than you spent to come here. Plus, the networking is fantastic.”
More than 450 exhibits helped help attendees find solutions to operational challenges and strategies to enhance asset performance. Exhibitor Nick Rosenberry of Siemens commented on how well the show went, stating, "What I’ve noticed is that the attendees who come to this show are very knowledgable. They’ve done their research and they know their stuff."
