The 2019 Empty Storefronts Conference run by NEWaukee and the National Association for Industrial and Office Parks of Wisconsin (NAIOP WI), is a day-long event on November 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting in the Avenue MKE at 161 W. Wisconsin Ave., previously known as the Grand Avenue Mall.

The day focuses on innovative entrepreneurship and building successful business models in currently empty storefronts throughout the city of Milwaukee, to show that your business could begin right here. If you’re interested in learning from and networking with experts in this area, we would love to offer you a free ticket — worth $100 — to the event.

Members are allowed to claim only one ticket per person here while supplies last. Our tickets are very limited, so act fast.
