Event Summary

We all know that Houston is booming and the population is increasing. Much of that growth is credited to the development of Houston Suburbs. Out of the 254 counties in Texas, Montgomery County ranks No. 11. In fact, the population has increased 28.6% since 2010. That’s an increase of 130,000 people! The economy is also very strong and continues to strengthen each year. This has led to a huge boom in both residential and commercial developments. With big projects like Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville and Johnson Development’s Woodforest, Montgomery County is making a name for itself nationally. Will this growth continue? How are these cities within the county differentiating themselves? Find out all you need to know about Montgomery County at this can’t miss event!

  4. What benefits are there from moving towards a more mixed-use, live, work, play society?
  5. Who are the next major players to break out, buy in and build up in Montgomery County?
