One of the key architects of the Opportunity Zone legislation, Steve Glickman, will join Skybridge Capital’s Anthony Scaramucci and Youngwoo & Associates’ Young Woo, among others, at The Real Deal‘s Future City 2019 for a workshop exploring the ins and outs of the Opportunity Zone program. The workshop is among 20 that will be held at the event.

Glickman was a senior economic advisor to President Obama and his firm, Develop Advisors, works with entities looking to raise and deploy capital into Opportunity Zones. Scaramucci, a financier who had a very short tenure as White House communications director, has been busy building a multi-billion-dollar Opportunity Zone fund, while Youngwoo & Associates launched their own OZ fund with EquityMultiple in September.

The trio, along with other experts, will parse the tax and legal implications of the program, as well as other key aspects important to the industry. They join a group of 200 C-level executives in the fields of development, tech, construction, design and finance to network with and learn from the top minds and biggest dealmakers in the country at Future City 2019, taking place at the Baha Mar resort from Jan. 27-29.

Some of our other confirmed attendees and thought leaders include: Don Peebles, John Catsimatidis, Michael Stern, Morris Moinian, Bruce Mosler, Sharif El-Gamal, Edgardo DeFortuna, Bob Knakal and more.

The industry is changing at a faster pace than ever before as a result of new technology, new sources of funding, new policies and new attitudes, and top thought leaders will be hosting workshops at the event enabling an understanding of these seismic shifts at a high-level, as well as their practical day-to-day applications.

In addition to 20-plus learning sessions, there will be programming to facilitate networking including golf, fitness activities, group meals and keynote speeches, cocktail events and plenty of other entertainment.

If you are VP level or higher, please email [email protected] for further details. Space is limited and subject to approval.
