6151 Lake Osprey Drive, LWR
$10 Members; $20 Non-members
Are you going to be incredible or invisible?
As Millennials become the largest single segment of the US workforce and the US' largest consumer group, they are bringing mobile technology with them.
- More than 70% of them report that the first thing they do in the morning after waking is reach for their smartphone. Is your business accessible to them?
- As of 2014, 70% of the world's population now has some sort of mobile device, even if they have no computer.
- More than half of all sessions on Facebook are via mobile device.
If your business isn't prepared to deliver an outstanding mobile experience via either website or social media, you may be missing new consumers who will become your future loyal audience!

The University Parkway Interchange: The Next 5 Years

Anyone who has been living in Sarasota and Manatee the last 5 years has witnessed the extraordinary growth of the University Parkway / I-75 interchange area, in spite of the economic and real estate downturn. LWR residential building in the area has held strong, and commercial and retail development has grown at a confident pace. Capping it all off was the completion of a stunning new shopping mall, one of only a handful that were built in the US over the last decade. All of this has been strategically placed where Bradenton, Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch all intersect.
As construction begins on an ambitious, forward thinking transportation design for I-75, we prepare for many things just around the corner: more retail, hotels and apartments surrounding UTC, the 2017 Rowing Championships, and the expansion of LWR south to Fruitville. The University Interchange is certainly an exciting place to watch grow over the coming years.
So what else is in store? What else can we expect to see? Join us for a lively and informative update on the future of the area from 3 deeply involved professionals from all sides of the industry.
