Testimonials

At the Opportunity Zone Expo, I met everyone I needed to put our deal together; from my attorneys to my investors. This conference group is very professional and value additive.

Grant King - Relevant Group

I found the conference to be very impressive in terms of the quality of speakers, panels and networking. I came away with a lot of business cards and made the acquaintance of several other advisors in the space.

Timothy Trifilo - CohnReznick

You all did an absolutely great job. You managed to not only provide experts in the field, but you also managed to provide an environment where people can interact and exchange information. GREAT JOB!

Lance Growth - Growth 1031

I wanted to let you know that I have found your forum to be the most exciting and compelling repository of thought leadership on the OZ front. You have also created a fabulous team around this and I enjoy working with each of them.

Susan Rounds - Deutsche Bank

It was an amazing event. Great information, great contacts, and you guys put on a first-class exposition. We look forward to future events.

Brent Forsberg - Urban Systems

As always, you guys put on a top-class conference. The content, panelists and sponsors were all amazing!

Mike Hines - First Foundation Bank

You guys did a phenomenal job putting the right people out there to cover the various related topics… it was a great Expo and much needed for the industry for sure!

Joe Awad - RE/MAX Leaders

We had a great time at the Expo and we were able to gain lots of traction for our project.

Robert Degen - Lee & Associates

I have already been communicating with a few attendees and some of the panelists from the event, so we definitely see the value of participating in future events.

UPCOMING EXPOS

Join us at our nationwide conference dedicated to Opportunity Zone stakeholders. Through its extensive network of professionals and industry experts, the Opportunity Zone Expo helps expand your business network and keep you updated about the industry.

Economic Development Agencies

Economic development agencies develop and bolster economic growth within a defined city, state or region. The agencies provide necessary resources and invaluable assistance, making them among the best sources of information for start-ups and expanding businesses looking for new development or investment opportunities.

Many of these agencies throughout the United States have created a prospectus highlighting their Opportunity Zones. The agencies note what projects or developments are needed and would be successful for their communities.

The Opportunity Zone Expo’s goal is to promote agencies using our product offerings, such as our website, podcasts, magazine, social media accounts and events. Using the Opportunity Zone Expo platform will gain exposure to potential investors across the country.
