California Commercial Real Estate Summit 2020

California Business Properties Association has changed the format of the 2020 California Commercial Real Estate Summit (CCRES)

Traditionally, a two-day meeting, the CCRES will now be a Zoom Webinar with state officials on June 10, from 10am to Noon. This event is the one time of year that industry leaders from all sectors of the commercial, industrial, and retail real estate industry join come together from across the nation and hear from top policymakers and California State Legislators.

Former California Governor Pete Wilson, sitting on the Task Force on Business and Job Recovery, is confirmed as one of the guest speakers. Among those invited are California’s Lieutenant Governor, Eleni Kounalakis, Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins, and the Senior Advisor on Business and Economic Development for the Office of the Governor, Che Salinas. All of this in addition to a legislative briefing, an update on the Split Roll Tax battle and current Covid-19 actions.

Due to the fluidity of the current situation and environment, what is of importance to all of us now, may not be as important as what is happening one month from now. For that reason, we will be tailoring the program and discussion as matters develop in the coming weeks. We thank you for your patience in this matter.


Registration is required for the 2020 CCRES Zoom. There will be no registration fee for this event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
