This year's conference features a welcome address by Maine Governor John Baldacci, a Maine economic forecast by Laurie Lachance, president of the Maine Development Foundation and former State Economist, and a capital markets overview by Larry Wold, president of TD Banknorth in Maine.

Topics to be covered include: An examination of current State statistics and what they reveal about the future of Maine's economy with an emphasis on real estate and a Market Overview by property type focusing on both Commercial and Residential Sectors.

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.
