Downtown Perspective Series: A New Opportunity For Downtown-Focused Networking

Thanks to JAX Chamber, beginning tomorrow local business professionals can gain a new viewpoint on Downtown Jacksonville – literally and figuratively. The Downtown Perspectives Series kicks off 5:30 p.m. tomorrow, Aug. 1, at the roof pool deck of the Omni Jacksonville Hotel.

This seven-week Downtown networking event series, which will rotate through a number of high-profile and unique top-floor viewing locations, will feature a brief talk by an invited guest on an aspect of Downtown revitalization or history and encourage proactive dialogue and creative thinking about Downtown Jacksonville.

“The event is an effort to take a look at Downtown from a different perspective,” said Tony Allegretti, director of Downtown engagement for JAX Chamber. “The unlikely locations are fun and inspiring. We also want folks to explore Downtown after the short presentations and meeting and greeting.”

Tomorrow’s installment will feature a short presentation from Christie Thompson Holechek, director Art in Public Places Jacksonville. Guests will be provided a list of Downtown activities available after the meet and greet.

“I would like to see the business community come together and learn a bit more about the great promise Downtown holds and take lots of photos of our amazing natural assets and unique built environment,” said Allegretti. “We’ve got a beautiful Downtown. It just takes some perspective.”
