This annual event brings together government policy makers and industry leaders for interactive conversations about the most important economic issues facing our state and how we can make New Jersey more competitive and attractive to young talent, new employers and investment, and more prosperous and affordable for all residents. Our program will include three segments:

  • Is New Jersey ready to move forward from being touted as “just a suburban market” to the more important “growth ring” of the NE region? Our panel will unpack the ideas around:  Next generation workforce and the ever-important talent migration; The evolution of our co-working ecosystems and the blended model for commercial development; Our shift away from the commoditization of our commercial product to a stronger identity and business ready product; and Commuting in New jersey has never been more difficult – how do satellite offices, technology and urbanization of campuses support this? Dana Nalbantian of Gensler will lead this discussion with Dan Loughlin of JLL, Mayor John Labrosse of Hackensack, Mayor Robert Parisi of West Orange, and more.
  • A Conversation with the New Legislative Leadership: NAIOP NJ President Dave Gibbons (Elberon Development Group) will lead a conversation with new Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, Senate President Pro Tempore Theresa Ruiz, Clark Machemer (Rockefeller Group), and Steve Santola (Woodmont Properties).
  • Featured Speaker: Matt Platkin, General Counsel to Governor Phil Murphy, will discuss the new administration’s priority issues and address industry concerns.
