As the economy and the real estate investment climate has improved, financing has continued to be a challenge for all investors. This has resulted in many developers using alternative financing channels like CROWDFUNDING which has greatly increased in interest and growth. To meet the educational and networking needs of the real estate investment community regarding these newer methods of alternative financing IMN has constructed an agenda for the real estate developer who is looking to finance their projects, the CROWDFUNDING portal, as well as other the service providers in this marketplace.
IMN makes sure the buy side attends our conference...IMN goes to extraordinary means, focusing on speaker recruitment and audience development to attract the buy-side delegates to every one of our conferences and we succeed! From our largest conferences in the Opportunity Fund area, which attract 450+ fund and investors out of the 1000 attendees regularly, to our mid-sized series of bank real estate workout events that get 100+ workout officers to attend out of the 250 attendees we provide an environment where education will be provided by the buy side for the buy side and the networking goals of a diverse audience will be met.
For our CROWDFUNDING Forum we expect a large attendance of developers, who are interested in using CROWDFUNDING financing to attend and speak. We also have been getting financial advisors, RIA's and financial planners signing up to attend. They assist in greasing the wheels of this market by routing their clients to specific portals and deals.
