History of THE FORUM & Re-Con
"Placemaking In The City & Neighborhood of Tomorrow"
The UM/ULI Real Estate Forum began as a reunion of Professor Peter Allen's students, Michigan real estate alumni, and industry professionals. Since the beginning, the Forum provided an annual opportunity for collaboration, innovation and influence through the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and best practices in the industry. The event has served as the pinnacle of Michigan's real estate program for decades.
Over the years, the event has always evolved, whether it be the changing of event programming, venues, time of year, or host partners such as the Michigan Real Estate Certificate Program. Despite changes, the convention has always been aimed at better honoring the mission of connecting Michigan real estate students and alumni.
