Nominate a Rising Star for Our Next Generation Awards
Connect Media will once again shine the spotlight on rising stars of commercial real estate with our second annual Next Generation Awards. Nominations for the 2018 awards are hereby open, and we invite you to get the ball rolling.
The inaugural edition of these awards identified 25 of the most talented young pros working in CRE. With the addition of the Chicago region to our coverage map, we’re looking for the best and brightest in the four U.S. regions where Connect provides daily news reporting, as well as nationally.
Just as we’re looking for Next Generation nominees from across the country, we’re also looking for candidates from across the CRE spectrum. Last year’s winners included rising stars in development, finance, tenant representation, investment sales and real estate law, to name a few of the disciplines that were represented.
After considering your recommendations, we’ll choose this year’s honorees. We’ll begin announcing them in August.
Candidates must be 35 or younger on December 31, 2018.
