About the Event:

Each January, over 600 of the state’s leading real estate experts attend MEREDA's TD Bank Sponsored Signature Event, the Annual Real Estate Forecast Conference. This annual event attracts hundreds from Maine’s real estate, construction, finance, architecture, legal, engineering, tourism, and economic development communities, the largest gathering of commercial real estate professionals in Maine.   

MEREDA assembles some of Maine's top real estate leaders to provide the annual Economic Overview and Outlook on Maine's economy, which includes an examination of current State statistics and what they reveal about the future of Maine's economy with an emphasis on real estate, along with the popular Market Overview by property type focusing on both Commercial and Residential Forecasts.  This unique forum is specifically geared toward developers, brokers, architects, bankers, attorneys, accountants and other industry professionals who will gain valuable insights on the state of the economy and what lies ahead in the coming months for the real estate industry. 

For 2015, we look forward to welcoming highly experienced U.S. economic researcher and forecaster, Michael Dolega, Senior Economist at TD Economics, which supports all of the divisions of TD Bank Group, who will provide his outlook on Maine’s economy, and Maine’s Governor, Paul LePage will provide the Welcome Address.  

This course has been approved for 4.00 hours of BROKER, LEGAL, APPRAISER & ARCHITECT Continuing Education Credits.

Supplementing the conference each year is MEREDA's Annual Member Showcase with MEREDA Members exhibiting their products and services in front of the "who's who" in commercial real estate.  The exhibition has become an integral part of our annual event providing a unique opportunity to network with MEREDA’s members.
