About the Event:

MEREDA's Signature Event will be held on Thursday, January 24, 2013 from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM at the Holiday Inn By the Bay, 88 Spring Street, Portland, ME. A record 600+ guests attended the conference last year, which says a lot about the health of our industry and the quality of the presentations we offer. 

MEREDA's Annual Real Estate Forecast Conference is a unique forum specifically geared toward developers, brokers, architects, bankers, attorneys, accountants and other industry professionals. Each year, MEREDA assembles some of Maine's top real estate leaders to provide the annual Economic Overview and Outlook on Maine's economy, which includes an examination of current State statistics and what they reveal about the future of Maine's economy with an emphasis on real estate, along with the popular Market Overview by property type focusing on both Commercial and Residential Forecasts.  Attendees gain valuable insights on the state of the economy and what lies ahead in the coming months for the real estate industry.

This course has been approved for 4.00 hours of BROKER, ARCHITECT, & LEGAL Continuing Education Credits.

Supplementing the conference will be MEREDA's Ninth Annual Member Showcase
with MEREDA Members exhibiting their products and services in front of the "who's who" in commercial real estate.  We anticipate another large crowd in 2013 and MEREDA's Member Showcase offers an excellent opportunity for Members to network and market their products and services.
