27th Annual FSU Real Estate TRENDS Conference
October 21 - 22, 2021

We are pleased to announce the FSU Real Estate Center’s Annual TRENDS Conference is scheduled Thursday, Oct. 21 and Friday, Oct. 22, 2021. Coinciding with FSU’s Homecoming and the UMass versus FSU football game on Saturday, Oct. 23, this year’s conference will be delivered both on site and virtually. 

The conference committee, chaired by Reggie Bouthillier of Stearns Weaver Miller, will deliver excellent sessions focusing on shifts in population and the effect on markets; the changing office landscape including work/live/play environments; housing trends including multifamily and build-to-rent; the future of retail; market disruptions from tech innovations and their impact on urban environments; and where investment capital is looking to find value in these changing times.  

We are excited to deliver this distinctive event through in-person and virtual options. The university is planning to accommodate face-to-face instruction in the fall, and we are optimistic the current capacity limits at the Turnbull Conference Center will be increased as strides are made in the nationwide distribution of vaccines to allow expanded in-person attendance. 


Thursday, Oct. 21: Formally opening with a reception at the Seminole Legacy Golf Club and featuring Trey Jones and Amy Bond, the FSU men’s and women’s head golf coaches. Sponsored by NAI TALCOR Commercial Real Estate Services and Stearns Weaver Miller, this exceptional outdoor event will enable you to network in comfort.

Friday, Oct. 22: The conference will be hosted in person at the Turnbull Conference Center and also delivered virtually to your desktop, with speakers also joining in person or virtually.
