The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is hosting its seventh annual Arizona Real Estate Trends Conference on Thursday, January 26, 2012, from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Phoenix. This year’s theme is “Entrepreneurial Innovation 2012 and Beyond.”

The Urban Land Institute’s mission is to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide. It doesn’t lobby or act as an advocate for any single industry. Instead, ULI examines land use issues, impartially reports findings and convenes forums to find solutions to complex land use problems, collaborating with industry and stakeholder groups worldwide.

For the seventh Arizona Real Estate Trends Conference, ULI Arizona will feature Frederick H. Waddell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Northern Trust Corporation, as the keynote speaker, and he’ll provide an overview of entrepreneurialism, innovation and economic stability for 2012 and beyond. Given the heightened interest in national and global financial institutions, Waddell will provide an insider’s perspective on the contemporary economic environment from the perspective of the banking industry.

Why else should you attend? The ULI Arizona Real Estate Trends Conference also features more than 30 of the industry’s top leaders discussing compelling issues affecting Arizona’s real estate development, jobs and the economy. At this conference, you’ll hear about current trends and critical issues in real estate development for the coming year. You can also network with national and regional real estate leaders, decision-makers and visionaries at Arizona’s pre-eminent forum for trends and relevant information.
