ScheinMedia and New Jersey & Company magazine announces that Newark Mayor Cory Booker will be the keynote speaker at The Newark Real Estate Conference, to be held September 27, 7:30am to 1:30pm, at NJPAC.

The conference will focus on the dramatic changes occurring in the City of Newark thanks to its mayor, the Honorable Cory Booker. Newark’s new initiatives include adding a new Land Use Element to its Master Plan in order to aid in the creation of new residential and commercial developments as well as proposed entertainment, cultural, sports, and parks facilities.

“The Booker Administration spent its first year in office laying the framework for economic development in the downtown core as well as in the neighborhoods, “says Ted Zangari, Chair of the Redevelopment Law practice group at the Sills Cummis law firm in Newark. “The city has now begun to make its sales pitch to corporate America, so the timing of a Newark-centric real estate conference could not be more perfect.”

The Newark Real Estate Conference will also serve to bring together the city’s leading real estate, legal, and government professionals in an open forum offering insights, conversation, and industry-wide networking.

In addition, the conference will also mark the launch of the premiere issued of New Jersey & Company magazine, a monthly magazine offering a unique mix of editorial on New Jersey as a progressive and nationally recognized corporate hub.
