Society of Commercial Realtors

Third Annual Commercial Trade Expo

Thursday, April 4

3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Cendera Center

3600 Benbrook Highway

Fort Worth 76116

Registration for the event is free, but early registration gets a free drink ticket.


For the third annual Commercial Trade Expo organized by the Society of Commercial Realtors, the group is continuing to broaden the audience that helped bring more than 300 people to the event last year.

“Generally, anyone tangentially involved with real estate should be there,” said Robert Gleason, CEO at the 200-member organization. “Any small business looking for a lease or to build or expand somewhere should come and see what the different EDCs (economic development corps) have to offer.

“If a small business is thinking about relocating or expanding, we think this is a perfect platform to see what’s out there,” he said. “The SCR Expo is an opportunity to learn about new developments in the region, identify sites for upcoming projects, and network with commercial realtors and other professionals in the industry.”

The idea for the initial Expo was to focus on commercial real estate on the western side of the Metroplex, Gleason said.

“Though it’s a little different, in Dallas they have a type of expo that draws a big crowd and is a real benefit to the commercial realtors there,” he said. “We thought our side of the Metroplex should put something on that focused on the Western side.”

Gleason said the value of the expo is that all these groups are situated in one area at the same time. “What might have taken you several days or weeks to accomplish with phone calls and meetings, you can accomplish in a couple of hours,” he said.

While the event has grown over three years, Gleason said the number of booths is steady, about 35, with the Cendera Center having a capacity of about 40.

“We’ve been steady with about 35 booths. The mix has changed. In addition to the EDC and last year we began bringing in some developers,” he said.

Created specifically for the commercial real estate practitioner, SCR offers the strength and backing of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) while focusing exclusively on the commercial real estate industry, according to the organization’s website.
