On Thursday, January 26, 2023, leaders from across Maine’s real estate industry will gather for the Maine Real Estate & Development Association’s (MEREDA’s) Forecast Conference and Member Showcase. This annual event will take place at the Cross Insurance Arena in Portland, and can also be streamed online. Is the housing market cooling down? How has inflation impacted the retail market? Is the industrial sector still booming? Anyone curious about these questions and what industry experts see for the future of Maine’s real estate economy will find the Forecast Conference a day full of insight and thoughtful presentations.
“The Forecast Conference kicks off the year in a great way,” shares MEREDA President Craig Young. “It’s where you have meaningful conversations, learn from other professionals, and connect with the people in our state who are driving responsible development. There’s no other place to be on January 26th!”
MEREDA’s Annual Forecast Conference is geared towards builders, developers, brokers, attorneys, architects, engineers, municipal leaders, bankers, and accountants, to name a few. Continuing Education credits will be available. Along with presentations from real estate leaders across various sectors and a keynote address on housing policy from Greg Payne, a Senior Advisor at the Governor’s Office of Policy Innovation and the Future, the conference will also include a member showcase with exhibitions from local businesses. MEREDA’s mission is to promote responsible development in the state of Maine and is why they work hard to provide opportunities for people to learn and connect with other industry professionals.
According to Shelly R. Clark, MEREDA’s Executive Director, MEREDA’s Forecast Conference will be held at the Cross Insurance Arena on January 26 from 9am to 5pm.
