What’s happening in Central Florida now, and what will the region look like in 10 years? An upcoming forum will connect the dots by bringing together leading real estate professionals along with top-level commercial planners, attorneys, bankers, brokers, construction companies, appraisers and city officials, among others, to discuss Central Florida trends.
The 2014 Central Florida Real Estate Forum
“Unity of the Community,” presented by the East Florida Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, is scheduled for Oct. 2, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Citrus Club in downtown Orlando.
Specific topics encompass real estate and more, ranging from Project Downtown Orlando and high technology to regional transportation, sports entertainment and county outlooks. Speakers include Randy Berridge, president of the Florida High Tech Corridor Council; Jim Wood, director of the Florida Department of Transportation’s Office of Policy Planning; Phil Rawlins, owner/president of the Orlando City Soccer Club; and John Walsh, CEO of the Canaveral Port Authority. Keynote speaker is Fred Kittinger, senior associate vice president for University Relations at the University of Central Florida, who will detail plans for downtown Orlando’s Creative Village.
Also notably, given limited space and the past popularity of these forums, reservations are strongly suggested no later than Sept. 15. More information: Appraisal Institute, East Florida Chapter, at eflai.org.
