2nd Cali Baja Real Estate Development Symposium
November 30, 2017, from 8:30 am – 6:30 pm
Paseo de los Héroes 9902, Tijuana, B.C. 22010 Mexico
For the past five years, the Cali-Baja peninsula, in particular the City of Tijuana, has been catapulted to the global stage for it’s award-winning cuisine, booming medical tourism industry, growing real estate market, and an influx of foreign capital investment. By all accounts, the city is in the midst of a transformational urban renaissance. Increased economic development activity has yielded positive changes including new employment opportunities, population growth and urban regeneration.
The positive effects of growth have amplified existing challenges with public infrastructure, the lack of a well-articulated long-term vision for the city, and a sustainable urban agenda. Despite being in different phases of phases of urban development, San Diego and Tijuana are facing similar land use opportunities and challenges. The 2nd Annual Cali-Baja Real Estate Investment Symposium will frame policy issues and propose solutions for sustained economic growth on both sides of the border.
The Cali-Baja Real Estate Investment Symposium is the region’s pre-eminent conference bringing together real estate and land use professionals from both sides of the border. Attendees represent developers, brokers, agents, engineers, designers, elected officials, academics, and more. Our goal is to provide participants with the tools to build better communities, responsible leadership, and create new professional connections.
