MIAMI-DADE OPPORTUNITY ZONE CONFERENCE & MARKETPLACE SCHEDULED IN NORTH MIAMI NEXT WEEK

North Miami, FL – 4/8/2019

Vice Mayor Philippe Bien-Aime will welcome over 200 participants attending the Miami-Dade Opportunity Zones Conference & Marketplace in North Miami next week. On Monday, April 8th, local leaders, developers, investors and small business owners will gather at Florida International University to discuss opportunity zones. North Miami City Manager Larry M. Spring, Jr., CPA, will also serve as a panelist during the one-day conference.   

Bien-Aime partnered with nationally known experts at Madison Street Strategies to host the conference on this critical investment program.  In North Miami, three census tracts were designated opportunity zones in 2018.  Miami’s opportunity zones cover critical potential investment areas within the City’s Northeast industrial corridor and Northwest 7th Avenue business corridor. The opportunity zone designations within these three tracts provide incentives for investors to direct money into historically under-invested areas.     

Participants will learn what local businesses, developers and investors can do to increase economic development for the community through investments in opportunity zones. To register, visit www.madison-street.com/miami.     

WHAT: Miami-Dade Opportunity Zones Conference & Marketplace   

WHEN: Monday, April 8, 2019,  9 a.m. – 5 p.m.   

WHERE: Florida International University, Wolfe University Center, 3000 NE 151 Street, North Miami
