Cornwall ON – Cornwall Economic Development will once again be showcasing development opportunities at the Property Management Exposition and Conference, more commonly known as PM Expo. The show takes place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, December 1-3, 2010. The City has exhibited at the show for the past several years.
The Cornwall Booth number is 1736. Cornwall development opportunities will be exhibited at the show, including brownfield development sites, commercial buildings available for sale or lease and greenfield development sites in the Cornwall Business Park. Cornwall has a number of advantages when it comes to building and development, not the least of which is the fact
that the City does not have development charges and has fully serviced land along Highway 401 for only $20,000/acre.
With over 1000 exhibits and a robust series of seminars that feature over 450 speakers, PM Expo brings together real estate, development and construction industry professionals in a once-a-year opportunity to make valuable contacts and learn about new products and best practices for 2010-2011.
The Show is held concurrently with Construct Canada, HomeBuilder & Renovator Expo, Concrete Canada, DesignTrends and the National GreenBuilding Conference. More than 23,500 visitors will attend PM Expo, including building owners, property managers,
interior designers, architects, contractors, engineers, real estate professionals and investors.
