The Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: Houston hosts between 300 and 450 of Houston’s region’s most prominent developers, investors, owners and operators. This event offers the opportunity to discuss the future of one of the strongest real estate and commercial markets in the country.

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.

The 4th Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: Houston was carefully designed to deliver real-time market intelligence, showcase those spearheading some of the most complex and innovative projects and deliver tangible takeaways that you can apply to your business through peer-to-peer roundtable discussions. Last year’s conference was keynoted by Marvy Finger of the Finger Companies. Last year’s topics include new developments, the state of the market post-Harvey, upcoming regulations, how to best finance your projects and which submarkets have the best opportunities.
