ULI Washingtonʼs second annual Urban Marketplace, an interactive day-long conference, will bring together private, nonprofit, and public sectors to explore redevelopment opportunities and best practices in emerging neighborhoods and corridors across the Washington metropolitan region. The interactive program, based upon successful models in Los Angeles and Houston, will include two keynote speakers, several breakout sessions, and an exhibit area with 70 exhibitors. With over 900 participants attending the inaugural Urban Marketplace, ULI Washington intends to make the second just as successful with a program that will offer attendees insights into revitalization in the region as well as opportunities to network, meet new partners, and lay the foundation for new deals. This event will be the largest of its kind in the Washington region with opportunities to exchange ideas, learn from each other, and make deals, and the first of its kind to bring together such a broad and diverse group of stakeholders.

The Urban Marketplace will have a highly interactive program, during which participants will delve into the most pressing topics impacting a broad range of issues. Expert speakers will offer insights and best practices on topics, such as affordable housing, urban retail, economic development, community development finance and lending, navigating the entitlement process, urban design, community outreach and government/public affairs.

The three keynote speakers will be Congressman Barney Frank, 4th District Massachusetts, Richard Baron of McCormack Baron Salazar and Bill Struever of Struever Bros. Eccles & Rouse. Moderators and panelists in the sessions will include notable experts on a variety of topics, including Chris Leinberger of The Brookings Institution, Gary Rappaport of the Rappaport Companies, and Derrick Woody from the District of Columbiaʼs Great Streets Initiative.
