The growing Queens real estate market will soon have a forum where industry leaders can gather to network and discuss opportunities across the borough.
The premier QNS Real Estate Conference will be held on Feb. 26, 2015, and will feature top real estate firms that are investing in the borough, while welcoming prospective developers, owners, architects and other industry members.
Star Network and The Queens Courier, in association with the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), are hosting the event, which will include a keynote address by Pat Foye, executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Real estate website PropertyShark and Flushing Bank are sponsoring the conference.
“This event is a great opportunity for the public to learn about the latest trends and investment information in Queens from the top people in our industry,” said Jamie McShane, REBNY senior vice president for communications. “Queens is becoming increasingly important as we have seen projects from Astoria Cove to Hallets Point, and projects at Queens Plaza South and the Long Island City waterfront, as well as Willets Point. And the members of the REBNY are very involved with a growing number of exciting projects in Queens, our largest borough and the most ethnically diverse county in America.”
The event will be at Terrace on the Park at 52-11 111th St. in Flushing at 8 a.m., beginning with breakfast and ending with three panel discussions.
The panel discussions will focus on why big investment firms are coming to Queens, the experiences of major developers already based in the borough and experts’ perspectives on the market in Ridgewood.
“The Queens market has huge opportunity, and this event will shed light on the power of it,” said Josh Schneps, co-publisher of The Courier. “This event is a perfect platform to do so for the industry. We hope people interested in the Queens market will attend and hopefully make investments in the borough.”
