Presented by Husch Blackwell

Will the bulls reign, or the bubbles burst in 2020?  NAIOP Wisconsin invites you to the 2019 Bulls or Bubbles for an informative and exciting discussion about what is next for commercial real estate. The event will feature a keynote presentation by Mark Eppli, Ph.D., Director at the UW Madison Graaskamp Center for Real Estate.
