(Aurora, Colorado) - October 8, 2008 - Graebel Companies, Inc. is a sponsor of the Third Annual CoreNet Global Learning Event, taking place on October 10 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver.
A half-day learning session for corporate real estate professionals and service providers, the event is presented by the Rocky Mountain chapter of CoreNet Global, a professional association for corporate real estate and workplace professionals with more than 7,000 members worldwide. This year's theme is "CHANGE + CHALLENGE = OPPORTUNITY," a timely topic in light of today's difficult real estate situation.
"Graebel works to make the lives of corporate real estate professionals easier through our global relocation services, household goods moving and storage, and commercial office moving and storage services" said Mike Rhue, Vice President of Commercial Business Development for Graebel. "We're very excited to sponsor our first CoreNet Global learning event, and look forward to future sessions with this important organization. Educational events like this one are critical tools for facility managers and real estate decision makers, as the national real estate crisis shows little sign of timely resolution."
Highlighting the learning event is Mary Manning, General Manager for Global Real Estate and Facility Services for ConocoPhillips, who will deliver the keynote address, "ConocoPhillips - The Future in Colorado." ConocoPhillips, headquartered in Houston, announced earlier this year plans to open a research and training campus in Louisville, Colorado at the former location of Storage Technology Corp., a data and tape storage company acquired by Sun Microsystems. Ms. Manning will deliver her keynote from 8:45 to 9:15 AM.
The event will begin at 7:30 AM and concludes at 1:00 PM. It will take place at the Hyatt Regency at the Colorado Convention Center (650 15th St, Denver, 80202). Additional information about the event or CoreNet Global may be found at www.corenetglobal.org.
