Register Now for the 29th Annual UM/ULI Real Estate Forum

The Forum returns to Detroit in 2015 for the second year of a three year commitment to hold the Forum in Detroit and focus on the best practices in the profession in one of the hottest markets in the country.

A bus tour, kick off reception and the Real Estate Excellence Awards dinner will take place on the evening of Tuesday, November 10, at the RattleSnake Club in Detroit. The full-day, general program will take place on November 11th in the COBO Center Grand Riverview Ballroom.


The real estate market has experienced significant change over the past few years, heightening the challenges to real estate professionals. Helping to understand how we can continue to serve the market and provide relevant developments for communities and clients is a primary focus of the Forum.  Real estate professionals from across the industry discovered how to thrive and learned about current best practices when they gathered on November 18th and 19th in Detroit for the 28th Annual University of Michigan and Urban Land Institute Real Estate Forum.

Through a combination of presentations* by leading local, regional, and national real estate practitioners, workshops, and guided bus tours, the Forum provided valuable lessons in real estate development and highlighted real estate investment and development opportunities across the Detroit area.
