Bisnow Multifamily Annual Conference (BMAC) East

Join Bisnow and the nation's top multifamily executives for the Seventh Annual BMAC East conference on Nov. 7th in Washington, D.C. 

According to CBRE, close to 280,000 multifamily units will be delivered in 2019 — just below 2018's 290,000+ units. But despite the lower number, demand is still strong in the multifamily sector, with residents looking for the latest tech and amenities, and developers increasingly investing in workforce and affordable housing throughout the East Coast. 

When the next downturn will occur is anybody's guess, but this is now the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. How can developers and investors best future-proof their portfolios and protect their assets, should the recession some experts are predicting come sooner than we think?   

Our all-star panelists will delve deep into all aspects of the multifamily industry, covering important topics such as: 

Development & Design: what overarching trends are still hot at this stage of the cycle?

- Investing & Financing in Multifamily: How to find value and increase your ROI

- Our Neighborhood Outlook: Where residents want to live — and why you should invest now

- Developing For the Future: what today's tech and hottest amenities mean for multifamily, and how they can help future-proof your portfolio

- Our Executive Outlook: lessons learned in 2019, and predictions to help you go into the new year with 2020 vision.
