2017 Carolinas’ Meeting | Charlotte, North Carolina

By all accounts, the Fourth Annual ULI Carolinas’ Meeting in Charlotte was a great success. With nearly 600 attendees from across the Carolinas, this was a well-attended, content-rich event full of dynamic speakers, engaging programs, and ample networking opportunities.

The theme for 2017 meeting was “Transforming Through Innovation & Community.”  Below are a few highlights from the meeting.

Without question, the region is transforming through innovation and community. Driven by economic and population growth, fueled by major private and public investments and shaped by visionary leadership— the Fourth Annual Carolinas’ Meeting highlighted the many ways we are entering a new era of innovation in the Carolinas. The face-to-face interaction and opportunities for personal connections presented at the annual Carolinas’ Meeting are not only still relevant in today’s virtual world, they are perhaps more important than ever.  As community builders, the large gatherings, small forums, workshops and sharing of best practices continue to strengthen ULI’s impact and reinforce the value of the ULI network. The annual ULI Carolinas’ Meeting continues to raise the bar for regional real estate and land use conferences.

Many thanks go to the 2017 Carolinas’ Meeting program committee and volunteers; ULI Global CEO, Patrick Phillips; ULI Chair of the Americas, Trish Healy; District Council Chairs Robert Morgan, Andy Holland and Rob Cochran; our event sponsors and to all the people in Charlotte who graciously welcomed the ULI community.
