About the Event:

The Chicago Commercial Real Estate Awards brings together more than 1,850 of Chicago’s top architects, brokers, developers, property managers, interior contractors and design professionals to both celebrate the outstanding achievements in all facets of the industry and to support the Greater Chicago Food Depository. This partnership truly helps to build a better Chicago. Last year’s event raised more than $1.5 million to help provide more than 4.5 million meals for our neighbors facing hunger. See the 2020 Event Preview here!
