This Friday, June 15, the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation will host the first ever “Bronx Commercial Investment Forum.”

The event will offer an opportunity to learn about the advantages of being in the Bronx from successful business leaders as well as visionaries that have relocated their companies to the borough.

Representatives from Equity One, Metropolitan Realty Associates, Triangle Equities and others will be on hand to discuss why they have chosen the Bronx as a place to do business. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. will also discuss the resurgence of the Bronx, and the ways that his office is available to assist businesses in relocating to the borough.

The event is co-sponsored by the Bronx/Manhattan North Association of Realtors and the Bronx Chamber of Commerce.
