The largest single-day conference focused on Suburban Development, Suburban Marketplace delivers leading-edge information with the ULI emphasis on real-world experience and best practices.

Industry experts and thought leaders will examine the vital role of high quality suburban development in dynamic, rapidly growing regions.

In the morning, special, optional mobile workshops allow participants to hear directly from the developers while touring world-class workplaces for the next decade and beyond. In the afternoon, City leaders and private developers will tell how to win a place on public + private development teams. Panelists will discuss their experiences developing the #1 top-selling residential master-planned community in the country, and market researchers will examine the changing face of suburbia: Who is buying? What are they buying? Where is the funding?

A marketplace of exhibits will bring participants face-to-face with innovators and leaders who are shaping and reshaping suburbia. Walking tours of CityCentre will take participants to see one of the most exciting and dynamic new developments transforming the West side of Houston.

Ending the evening with relaxed networking, ULI Members receive complimentary admission to a cocktail reception at Monnalisa Bar in the beautiful Hotel Sorella.
