CCRES 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. CBPA, BOMA California, NAIOP California, ICSC, IREM and others had members from Sacramento, San Francisco, SoCal, Greater Los Angeles, San Diego and all over California converged on the Capitol.

DAY 1: 

We kicked off the event with a reception on Tuesday at Prelude Kitchen and Bar, right across the street from the Capitol. Over 30 California Legislators stopped by to meet and talk with attendees about commercial real estate from all over the state. Afterwards, local delegations held individual dinners and invite their legislators to join them!

DAY 2:

After a CCRES Breakfast, our delegation took to the Capitol and Swing Space to advocate for our industry and hear from elected officials and the Newsom Administration. Attendees met with over 1/3 of the Legislature in the new Swing Space, with every attendee getting to speak to their local Assemblymember or Senator, in the span of just a few hours! All the while we heard from Assemblymember Choi, Assemblymember Rubio, Assemblymember Petrie-Norris, Assemblymember Cooper, Assemblymember Villapadua, and Governor Newsom’s Senior Consultant, Jason Elliot in the Capitol Building. After a productive day of advocacy and education, the event wrapped up at Whired Wine Bar where meeting notes were exchanged, and our friends and colleagues said their goodbyes heading home.
