Downtown Lunch & Learns

Downtown Lunch & Learns are recurring lunchtime events that provide opportunities for DLU members and others to stay informed on the issues facing Downtown Lafayette and engage with the leaders who can shape our district’s future. The Lunch & Learns take place in many formats from guest presentations, panel discussions, group discussions, and town hall style meetings.

Downtown Member Meet-Ups

Downtown Meet-Ups are a partnership between DLU and Opportunity Machine to create a series of happy hour events in Downtown Lafayette for local entrepreneurs, new business owners, Downtown business champions, and community members.

Attendees of Downtown Meet-Ups can:

  1. Hear from Downtown entrepreneurs about why they chose to locate Downtown, what opportunities and challenges they have faced, and how they are growing their business in the heart of our city.
  2. Create connections with local individuals and businesses and experience inclusive conversations with people from different fields of business discussing their problems and asking questions. Our hope is that mentor relationship will form through this exchange.
  3. Learn, socialize, network, and advocate for Downtown’s future.

Downtown Property Walks

Join DLU to get an inside look at commercial real estate properties currently on the market for sale or lease. The walk normally consists of 2-3 properties that are walkable in the downtown area, and attendees are also invited to a happy hour to network and visit with real estate professionals, residents, and those interested in doing business downtown!
Property Walks are FREE to attend with limited tickets available, so be sure to register if you are interested if you would like to join us.
