Investing & Attracting Talent to the Seaport's Working and Economic Community

Why This Matters

What you'll learn:

  • What makes the Seaport desirable in Boston's booming life sciences market and what is the growth potential for lab and office space?
  • What and where is the long-term vision for the Seaport’s expansion and which developments can best lead that movement?
  • How can innovative tenants attract talented and diverse-minded individuals to work in the Seaport and how can the Seaport become a destination spot for Boston employees?
  • How are tenant demands changing the design and amenities of multi-use spaces?
  • How do you strike a balance between increasing jobs and making the Seaport a desirable living community?  
  • How are the Seaport’s hospitality, entertainment, and retail sectors adjusting to the impacts of Covid-19? What pivots, if any, are necessary?


How you'll do more business: As we navigate a new urban waterfront landscape, you can gain exclusive insights into what is next for Boston’s innovation hub. We will examine the rapid life sciences and office expansion in the Seaport, how the Seaport can help Boston become an 18-hour city, trends around mixed-use facilities, and what tenants and residents are looking for in order to establish the Seaport as an all-encompassing work-live-play community.   


Who attends: Investors, owners, developers, lenders, brokers, planners, tenants, contractors, architects, property managers and advisers.


Why should you attend: Bisnow events bring together the biggest power players in the industry to identify opportunities, build your network, and expand your business. With the largest audience of commercial real estate professionals in the world, and a very informed Seaport community, there is no better way to network and strengthen your business.
