Brownfield Listings Expands Free Technical Assistance Program for Brownfields 2015

Attendees encouraged to get a jump on this year's Economic Redevelopment Forum in Chicago by sharing information ahead of the conference.

Jun. 25, 2015 / PRZen / CHICAGO -- Brownfield Listings, the leading online redevelopment marketplace and project workspace, is expanding its free technical assistance program to support eligible attendees to the Economic Redevelopment Forum (ERF) at this year's National Brownfield Training Conference in Chicago September 2-4 (Brownfields 2015). Public sector ERF participants and their teams can take advantage of this free technical support by working with Brownfield Listings staff to build their listings, projects and profiles.

The registration fee to Brownfields 2015 includes free subscriptions for complimentary property listings, project boards and organization profiles on, so attendees can start sharing information and substantive detail well in advance of this year's conference. Building a technology bridge to Brownfield Listings' national marketplace will empower Brownfields 2015 attendees to share property and project information and connect to other redevelopment stakeholders before, during, and after the conference.

Brownfield Listings' technical assistance program is designed to help attendees get the jump on their ERF experience. "We didn't want to let technical know-how, fear of data-entry or limited time resources stand between folks and the new ERF experience," said Brownfield Listings' CEO Dan French in a statement. Many municipalities and communities have data on their properties collected over the years but no means or method to organize it.

"There are too many Phase I reports taking up space in desk drawers," French continued, "and a lot of old charrettes collecting dust on the shelf." A generation of plans, hard work and good intentions were lost in the real estate bubble that popped in 2008. With interest rates low, the economy heating up and Brownfields 2015 around the corner, "It's time to dust that old due diligence off" French advised; "information is the fuel for markets and old ideas can have value as a starting point."

Those interested in taking advantage of this free technical assistance program can submit inquiries to or directly by emailing

Brownfield Listings' front-end technical assistance will dovetail with the Brownfields Transaction Consultations provided on-site at the ERF, which pairs attendees with advisers who can analyze and assess their property and provide takeaway guidance. These first come, first serve advisory sessions provide attendees with an opportunity to receive free expert advice on how to make their sites more marketable, while identifying any potential deal killers or hurdles they may face in redevelopment.
