The Marcus & Millichap / IPA Multifamily Forum: Southern California 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.

For its 8th successful year, Marcus & Millichap Multifamily Forum: Mid-Atlantic 2018 was the meeting place for the most innovative multifamily leaders for a day of networking, idea sharing and deal making.

Check out the recap from the event and see more pictures here.

“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.”
