More than 300 business, tech, real estate and civic leaders will attend the 4th annual “LIC Summit,” hosted by the Long Island City Partnership and Modern Spaces. The day-long forum explores issues currently affecting LIC and issues that will shape the neighborhood’s future as a critical economic driver for the city and region.
This year, the Summit’s focus is how to knit the community together by innovating at every level – from the streets to the “cloud.” Discussions will cover:
How to knit the growing population and expanding businesses together to foster place and community
How LIC can accommodate more space for innovation, tech and biosciences
How to build the right retail mix, connect people to our cultural resources, facilitate job growth and encourage healthy living
LIC has become a destination for families, empty nesters and local workers. Over the next year, nearly 10,000 units of housing will open, how is the next round of developments adjusting to reflect these demographics and do we anticipate future demand shifting?
Speakers this year include Alan Suna (Silvercup), Carlo Scissura (NY Building Congress), Kathryn Wylde (Partnership for NYC), James Patchett (NYCEDC), Seth Pinsky (RXR), Angela Sung-Pinsky (ABNY), and Winston Fisher (Fisher Brothers).
