More than 1,000 professionals from around the United States attended the Opportunity Zone Expo on Friday in downtown Los Angeles to learn and network about Opportunity Zones.

The sold-out event at the JW Marriott L.A. Live hotel was headlined by three keynote speakers: California State Treasurer Fiona Ma, former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt and former Congressman Keith Rothfus of Pennsylvania.

It was standing-room only for many of the expo’s panelist tracks that explored investment and capital raising strategies. The expo hosted 50 panelists from around the United States who spoke on a series of topics that included identifying Opportunity Zones, choosing the best investment, exit strategies, the basics of Qualified Opportunity Funds, capitalizing on opportunities and maximizing public/private cooperation.

The expo was also proud to host 20 sponsors whose booths filled the Exhibitor Hall and provided information on projects, capital raising and partnerships.

The next Opportunity Zone Expo will be in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in May. Get your early-bird tickets now!
