Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan, New York City

46 days left

Coming off the US government’s newly created Opportunity Zone (or OZ) program, created as part of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, Opal will bring together top tier experts, influencers, and investors of this area for dynamic discussions. We will examine the importance of the program and its impact on low-income and distressed communities.

The program will discuss how this program is encouraging long-term private sector investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. Not only will this event explore the OZ investment process and regulations, but the forum will also explore current opportunities of the program and future potential implications of investing through Qualified Opportunity Zones.
