BizTimes Media’s 18th annual Commercial Real Estate and Development Conference will take a deep dive into the two dominant issues that have come to the forefront in 2020, COVID-19 and racial inequality, and how those issues affect the Milwaukee area real estate market.

The free conference, which will be held virtually on Thursday, Nov. 19, will consist of two panel discussions.

The first panel will discuss the short- and long-term impact of COVID-19 and also the agents work on the waterfront homes for sale properties. They will also look into this year’s work-from-home practices on the future of the southeastern Wisconsin office market. The panelists for that discussion will include:

The second panel will discuss the need to attract more development to lower-income neighborhoods in Milwaukee and will explore the reasons that attracting development in those areas has been so difficult. The panelists for that discussion will include:

Andy Hunt, the director of the Marquette University Center for Real Estate will be the moderator for the panel discussions.

Marquette and the Commercial Association of Realtors Wisconsin are event partners. The conference is sponsored by CLA, Husch Blackwell and Johnson Financial Group.
