Sacramento: What's Next for the Region?

The CoreNet Global Northern California Chapter, in conjunction with the generous support of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council and the Sacramento Kings, is excited to present the following exclusive event for our members.

Sacramento is a market that has been getting a lot of attention recently. A major catalyst for the Capitol’s renaissance can be attributed to the Sacramento Kings opening a new arena right in the heart of the city, causing a ripple effect of $3.2 billion in investment in the downtown grid. In this program you will hear from Martina Koloktronis, COO of the Sacramento Kings as she discusses the success of the project to date and the future vision that the Kings organization has to help continue the urban revitalization of Sacramento.

In addition, Alastair MacGregor a lead architects on the arena project from AECOM will discuss the design principals that enabled the creation of one of the greenest and most technologically advanced arenas in the world and a communal public space that is now the heart of downtown Sacramento.
