Urban Marketplace 2007 is a unique conference on investment opportunities and development strategies for Southern California's emerging lower income and distressed neighborhoods. The ULI LA Urban Marketplace has become a national model over the past six years, attracting over 3400 real estate and related professionals, as well as community and government leaders to its case studies, roundtable discussions, and exhibits. Attendees learn best practices and solidify relations with key professionals and leaders at the forefront of revitalizing the inner city.
This year's event will explore strategies and best practices for investing and developing in Los Angeles' emerging neighborhoods. The discussion — entitled Where is L.A. Headed? Solving the Real Estate Puzzle — focuses on redevelopment and economic investment in four regions within the city: Hollywood, Downtown L.A., East L.A., and Inglewood.
