Event Details

A Brand New Virtual Experience

The Mid Florida Housing Summit has been designed to give attendees a better perspective of the current rental housing market and a vision for the future. Our expert presenters will answer the following questions (and more) in this engaging virtual experience...

  • Can the Tampa Bay and Orlando regions anticipate continued unprecedented population growth? 
  • Will the affordable housing crisis be lessened or exacerbated in the aftermath of COVID19?
  • Will development and multifamily transactions continue at the same pace?
  • How has the legal landscape changed?

No doubt, the pandemic has created significant challenges, but as with all major shifts, it will also create new opportunities. 

This event is well suited to property management practitioners in a multi-site, development, or ownership role, but is open to all apartment industry and associate/supplier professionals.  AAGO and BAAA members will receive special "members only" pricing.
