Presented each year by the local chapter of the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR), Development Day is considered by many to be the metro’s signature CRE networking event of the year.

“This event provides an unparalleled opportunity to network with industry leaders, highlight new projects, explore opportunities and celebrate successes - all in one setting. We are thrilled to be holding this year's event at Kansas City's historic Union Station and are looking forward to a great evening,” said 2018 Development Day Chair John StacyReece Commercial.

More than 80 exhibitors and hundreds of attendees are expected to attend the free event from 4:30-7:30 p.m. in Union Station's Grand Plaza. The event includes hors d’oeuvres from Jack Stack and cash bar. Free onsite parking will be available in the Union Station parking garage.

“We value the support and participation of those in the Kansas City commercial real estate industry that help develop the Kansas City community. It is an honor to chair the 29th annual SIOR Development Day,” Stacy added.
