Supplementing the conference will be MEREDA's Fifth Annual Member Showcase with MEREDA Members exhibiting their products and services in front of the "who's who" in commercial real estate. We anticipate approximately 550 will attend the Annual Forecast Conference again this year and MEREDA's Member Showcase offers an excellent opportunity for Members to network and market their products and services.
