Opportunity Zones Investments are Accelerating

Develop your professional relationships and reconnect with others active in opportunity zones (OZ) investment in Cleveland, a city that is benefiting from more than $250 million of OZ investment. Learn from qualified opportunity fund (QOF) managers, investors, developers and Novogradac accountants who will discuss the state of the marketplace, types of project trends, plus structuring and operational considerations of QOFs.

For those unable to join us in Cleveland, we invite you to join us online, where you can view our panels, chat with both in-person and virtual attendees, plus watch online-only content of the event.

The Events Desk is available to answer any questions by email or by calling us at 720-253-1241.
