USA: ULI Fall Meeting 2017 @ Los Angeles Convention Center
Oct 23 – Oct 26 all-day

Building resilient communities is high on the agenda at the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) 2017 Fall Meeting, set for October 23-26 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles. This topic – a particularly timely one given the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and the approach of Hurricane Irma – will be explored within the context of a wide range of urban issues such as housing affordability, gentrification and social equity, technology advancements, and demographic shifts, all with a focus on the short- and long-term implications for real estate. The meeting will also include programming specific to the extraordinary transformation of downtown Los Angeles into a highly sought-after place to live as well as work.

NBA basketball legend Earvin “Magic” Johnson, the chairman and chief executive officer of Magic Johnson Enterprises, an investment conglomerate valued at an estimated $1 billion dollars; Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan; and globally renowned architect Frank Gehry, who designed the iconic Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, will headline an impressive list of keynote speakers as well as thought leaders who are influencing the built environment through their work. In addition, findings from the highly anticipated Emerging Trends in Real Estate® 2018 survey will be discussed during a general session that spotlights the most favorable markets for investment and development next year. (Last year, Austin, Texas ranked first; Los Angeles took fifth place.)

USA: Commercial UAV Expo 2017
Oct 24 – Oct 26 all-day

Commercial UAV Expo is for a very specific category of UAS users: those using drones for highly technical work in seven vertical industries.

Every day, I speak to professionals integrating or operating UAS for large industrial assets and this is what I’ve found: For them, it’s all about the data, from precise data acquisition, to processing, to deliverables that inform business decisions.

If this rings true for you, there is only one commercial UAS event that will address your questions at the level you need and that’s Commercial UAV Expo.
