Real Estate and Development Symposium 2012CPBJ Staff
The Central Penn Business Journal held its eighth annual Real Estate and Development Symposium on Dec. 17 at Hershey Lodge in Derry Township, Dauphin County.
The event focused on future rail improvement projects between Harrisburg and Philadelphia, which should create surrounding development opportunities. The afternoon’s breakout sessions provided insight into commercial development deals from two professionals, and a trio of supply-chain management experts talked about factors that affect freight movement and its impact on the local economy. The day concluded with a local economist’s view on the “fiscal cliff” and a seasoned pollster’s thoughts on the current landscape of national and state politics.
