Building for Boomers & Beyond includes 19 education sessions featuring top industry leaders and nationally recognized speakers. The sessions will explore topics including design and development, finance, marketing and sales, research and trends and an all-new multifamily track for companies that are building apartments, condominiums and townhouses for seniors.
Jon Fels, president of Avatar Properties, Inc., a Coral Gables, FL-based builder/developer of several active adult communities in Florida and Arizona, will speak at the symposium’s Icons of the Industry Awards breakfast. He will discuss his industry experiences creating lifestyle communities for active adults.
Also speaking will be Sheryl Palmer, Nevada-area president for Pulte Homes, and David Smith, vice president of Cambridge Homes/D.R. Horton. In their session, “Success Stories,” they will compare costs, marketing ideas and successes as well as discuss the development challenges they faced in their respective active adult communities.
“Our speakers will tap into their own personal experiences and use actual case studies,” Giordano said. “All attendees will learn something, whether they are building their first age-qualified or age-targeted community or are industry veterans.”
Other highlights of Building for Boomers & Beyond include an exhibit area featuring products and services tailored to 50+ consumers and networking events.
