PORTLAND, Maine — More than 500 of Maine’s commercial real estate industry leaders are gathering in Portland to look ahead into industry trends.

Developers, brokers, architects, bankers, attorneys, engineers, accountants and other professionals are gathering Thursday for a Maine Real Estate and Development Association forecast conference. Participants will take stock of the economy and hear forecasts for the coming year in various regions and market sectors.

Organizers say the election of a pro-development governor and Legislature should also be a major topic of discussion.

The Maine Real Estate and Development Association is a non-profit with 200 members.
