Event Details

The most important decision in people's lives today is the “place” they choose to live.  The University of Illinois at Champaign Urbana and the State of Illinois have the human capital, public and private real estate assets, and anchor institutions to optimize the future through real estate innovation and inclusive “place-making” strategies.

The University of Illinois College of Business, SAP, UIUC Research Park, and SVN invite you to join U.S. Congressman Rodney Davis, Jim Schultz of Intersect Illinois, Dean Jeffrey Brown of the UIUC College of Business, Illinois Director of Real Estate Kreg Allison, Jeanette Tamayo, Regional Director of the U.S. EDA, Calvin Holmes from the Chicago Community Loan Fund, University of Illinois Research Park Director Laura Frerichs, Mayor Deb Feinen of Champaign, and distinguished keynotes from Brookings Institute, SAP, and Johns Hopkins University for a half-day program on strategies to accelerate economic development in the UIUC region. 

Our challenge to academia, corporations, government leaders, and the community is;  How can we elevate beyond prior actions in reimagining more of the UIUC region’s communities as “Places of Innovation” with inclusive economic development, impact analytics, diversity, parity, and shared equity?

UIUC is already a “place of innovation” with Abbott Labs, Archer Daniels Midland, Ameren, Caterpillar, Citrix, Dow, Capital One, John Deere, Foxconn, Illinois American Water, State Farm, and many other great enterprises.  These irreplaceable anchor institutions position the region to present a very compelling story to the market about the UIUC region’s future potential.

Unlocking the UIUC region’s future economic development potential will be directly linked to how well we, as key stakeholders, collaborate on optimizing our public and private real estate assets and human capital.  This is the thesis for our Symposium, and topics will include:

  • Public and private real estate asset optimization: How reimagining real estate in undervalued regional communities can stimulate more economic development, jobs, and attract new anchor institutions, entrepreneurs, residents, graduates, and stakeholders to the region.
  • “Place-Making” economic development and shared value through real estate innovation: How corporate, government, neighborhood stakeholders, and anchor institutions can develop new strategies that “close the gap” on an inclusive economy and human flourishing in our cities and rural areas.

Symposium attendees will gain new perspectives on how collaborative, regional “Place-Making” strategies will add significant value to the existing innovation ecosystems in the UIUC region and statewide.  Regional collaboration will deliver broad-based social and economic value to regional stakeholders from food, aviation, healthcare, manufacturing, technology, infrastructure, and agricultural ecosystems.
