Event description

Description

The Forum is a series of engaging conversations focused on relevant and important topics impacting Bay Area lifestyle. Inspiring and provocative influencers and experts are invited to participate in open and frank discussions. Guests range from artists, entrepreneurs, and futurists to business leaders, tech pioneers and elected officials.

Gain an insider’s perspective through a candid conversation on local real estate development projects, government policies, opportunities and economic impacts from two panels of locally active real estate developers and elected officials.

What are the major residential and commercial projects impacting the community? What level of involvement will local developers and contractors have in upcoming ventures? Who are the players? Where do the elected officials stand? What job opportunities exist now, during and after the development cycle? How are community needs addressed in the development of the "new" Oakland?
