Join us in December

We are excited to announce that registration is now open for the 4th annual Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: New England. On December 13, the Northeast’s most prominent apartment developers, investors, owners, and operators will gather to explore future opportunities in one of the nation’s hottest markets for multifamily investment, where low vacancy and strong demographic trends are propelling rents upward when other major markets are seeing their rents stagnate or even drop!

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from some of the market’s active players and catch a special fireside chat with Chuck Leitner, CEO of Berkshire Group. The program also features a dynamic presentation on Suffolk Downs, one of the Northeast’s biggest developments, led by Tom O’Brien and Doug Manz of HYM.

New This Year:

  • Closed-door, peer-to-peer roundtables. These sessions bring together groups of 20 to 25 hand-picked decision makers for candid conversation around shared challenges and ideas. Roundtable groups include developers and operational leaders.
  • Focused content sessions that address specific timely pain points and growth opportunities including construction costs, mega-projects impacts on infrastructure, co-living, acquisition opportunities, suburban transit-oriented development, financing, deal flow and more.
  • One-to-one meeting app which allows you to see who specifically is attending and book 15-minutes of facetime with them at a specific meeting area on site. Given that the event is curated to primarily include senior decision makers from multifamily principals and investors, the opportunities to meet with operating or capital partners are numerous.
  • A renewed focus on technology and innovation to guide multifamily operational leaders to improve the bottom line in an increasingly competitive environment by implementing software and building-level technology solutions.
