Innovative city building will be front and center at the Urban Land Institute’s (ULI) 2018 Spring Meeting, set for May 1-3 at the Cobo Center in downtown Detroit. A major focus for the 2018 gathering will be the reinvention of urban areas into thriving places that are drawing talented workers and businesses and are becoming magnets for investment. The Detroit metropolitan area, which is experiencing an extraordinary renaissance, is a prime example of this urban evolution.
ULI’s Spring Meeting routinely draws more than 3,000 of ULI’s most engaged members, including renowned industry experts from around the world sharing insights on all aspects of real estate. Lessons learned from transformative development – including examples from Detroit — will be discussed within the context of a wide range of urban issues such as housing affordability, gentrification, social equity, technology advancements, and demographic shifts, all with a focus on the short- and long-term implications for cities.

For the fourth year in a row, global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc. invites design professionals, educators and students in the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries to the annual Vectorworks Design Summit. The Summit will take place from November 4 to November 6, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass, and this ultimate training experience will consist of industry workshops, inspirational design and networking.
“The architecture and landscape in Arizona are very different from the city backdrops we have had in the last three years, and I think our customers will enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives to enjoy this scenic desert location,” said Nicole Davison, vice president of sales at Vectorworks, who is originally from Tucson. “The weather in November will be beautiful and allow us to network outside and enjoy the mountains, sun and native Arizona landscape.”
Located in the Sonoran Desert, the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass celebrates the Gila River Indian heritage and culture, offering a quiet serenity combined with a high-tech hotel experience. Attendees are encouraged to extend their stay and enjoy everything the resort has to offer, including an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, a world-class spa and much more.
