The conference in its 22nd year will be hosted in Atlantic City.
New Jersey is striving for innovative approaches to affordable housing, job creation, and building a stronger and fairer economy. This year’s Governor’s Conference on Housing and Economic Development will build on those themes, spurring new ideas, stimulating discussion and thought-provoking solutions as we move ahead to create a strong future for New Jersey. As always, the conference draws key leaders from across the state in business and government, housing and economic development, and nonprofits sharing their insights and perspectives.
This year’s conference will offer a cutting-edge program, engaging trade and industry exhibitors, and a new permanent logo that brands the conference as the state’s premier housing and economic development forum.
This year will be transformative in New Jersey, and the conference is an exciting opportunity to be part of the key discussions and developments happening across our state.
New this year, the conference kicks off with a Hall of Fame Reception at which a 2018 Housing and Economic Development Hall of Fame Award will be presented.
You can submit your nomination for a Hall of Fame Award winner as you register online. The nomination is part of the registration process. Learn more about the award and reception here.
The Housing and Economic Development Hall of Fame Award will recognize pioneers in the housing and economic development fields. Award winners can range from those who work to create, finance and develop affordable housing and economic growth opportunities to individuals who advocate, lead and educate the public on the issues.
The Hall of Fame Reception will take place Monday, October 1, from 7-9 p.m. at the Pool at Harrah’s at a cost of $25. Registration is first-come, first-served for this event due to limited reception space.
