Now in its sixth year, the Marcus & Millichap Multifamily Forum: Chicago has become the annual meeting place for the most prominent developers, investors, owners and operators of multifamily. At its core, the event’s mission is to bring multifamily leaders together with the purpose of solving, evolving and exploiting new opportunities.

The Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forums across the U.S. bring together over 6,000 multifamily owners, investors, managers and developers annually to create an in-person marketplace for learning, discovery, networking and deal-making. The sessions address the major issues affecting the apartment and condo markets today, and the networking allows multi-housing principals to meet, talk and source deals and investment capital.

Who Speaks

Speakers at the Marcus & Millichap Multifamily Forum: Chicago are typically senior executives and company leaders who own, invest and/or develop multifamily properties in the greater region, as well as a curated selection of industry leaders from organizations that impact the industry.

“Great energy and presentation, and all the content was incredibly relevant to my business. The speakers were very engaging and informative.”

“The speakers were all competent and comfortable communicating key information. These events can be pretty superficial; this was much more than that.”
