  • BMAC Midwest Special Reception

Bisnow Multifamily Annual Conference Midwest

Bisnow is thrilled to announce we are back in the windy city for our 3rd annual BMAC Midwest event!

 

We are continuing to bring you access to the region’s top real estate professionals to provide their expertise and thought leadership regarding one of the hottest asset classes nationwide.

 

Discussion topics to include:

- Innovative design and construction

- Creative finance options

- Leveraging new CRE tech

- The rise of mixed-use development

- Rising construction and labor costs

- Adding value through amenities and top service

- Where the best ROI remains

 

And of course, we will dive into the Affordable Housing Crisis. Ten years after the Great Recession, the U.S. economy is strong, unemployment is the lowest it's been since the 1960's and thousands of new apartments are getting built around the country. Yet, despite the influx of jobs, wage growth has remained stagnant, leaving millions of middle-class Americans without savings, living paycheck to paycheck as they continue to fight for what generations before have taken for granted; decent, affordable housing.

 

As always, Bisnow provides plenty of opportunities to network and meet some of the industry's top players at a fun and fast-paced full-day event. We look forward to seeing you there!
