FREE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE
This year’s National Brownfields Training Conference promises to take active engagement to another level when it arrives in Pittsburgh—with more opportunities to grow your professional acumen and advance your property/project than any conference prior.
There are pre-conference workshops, redevelopment consultations, regional open houses, TAB offices hours, a data showcase and so many other opportunities to work with real redevelopment pros on your project and discuss your issues.
Brownfields 2017 attendees can bring properties and post projects to the Economic Redevelopment Forum (ERF) Marketplace and receive technical support, get expert guidance and/or gain tremendous exposure. The ERF Marketplace Map will feature properties and projects with exclusive placement on the conference website, on the national redevelopment marketplace, here on Brownfield Listings, and across the internet in a combined campaign to draw attention and/or action to each redevelopment opportunity that participates.
For these reasons, there will be no better place to post your RFP, RFQ or RFI this fall than in the ERF Marketplace at Brownfields 2017. Whether it’s the first step on your journey to redevelopment or the last—and you’re looking for a buyer or developer—you will find multiple pathways to make real progress in Pittsburgh.
PAST SUCCESS IN ERF MARKETPLACE
Howardville, Missouri was an EPA brownfield grant winner, but failed to find a vendor to perform the work at its historic high school for years after three RFP attempts all went unanswered.
A fourth RFP was published in the ERF Marketplace ahead of the conference and featured on BrownfieldListings.com. Howardville’s participation and online presence drew attention to its RFP from not one, but half a dozen environmental consulting firms with the experience to take on the challenges at the community's largest structure. The ERF Marketplace gave Howardville its pick of consultants and it signed on its first choice less than a month after attending Brownfields 2015.
