You know you are a force when industry experts call a conference to discuss how to best serve your needs. The National Association of Home Builders is hosting a conference in Philadelphia (April 27-29), “Building for Boomers & Beyond: 50+ Housing Symposium”.
The conference will bring together builders and a host of experts to discuss how to best meet baby boomer needs as this huge group gets ready for retirement living. Keynote speakers include Mark Zandi, Chief Economist & Co-Founder, Moody’s Economy.com; and Dave Crowe, NAHB Chief Economist. Some of the planned sessions include a bus tour of active adult communities in Philadelphia’s northern suburbs. There will be a case study on Chatfield Farms: Redefining a 55+ Lifestyle Community.
Your Topretirements editor will be attending the conference to try to glean some insight into what might be coming up for baby boomer housing. Some of the sessions we are interested in attending include “Developing Active Adult Communities: A New Model for the Baby Boom Generation” and ” Boomers in the City: Designing for an Urban Lifestyle”.
