Greenville to host annual ULI Carolinas’ Meeting


ULI South Carolina, ULI Charlotte, and ULI Triangle will be hosting the annual ULI Carolinas’ Meeting in Greenville this year on Feb. 12-13 at the Hyatt Regency.

Urban Land Institute (ULI) is an international nonprofit research and education organization with offices around the world. Its stated mission is “to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.”

The meeting in Greenville will bring together more than 600 real estate development professionals to network and learn from nationally recognized speakers and each other. Local member of 36 years, Phil Hughes of Hughes Investments, was instrumental in bringing the meeting to Greenville.

“We try to have a meeting in the Carolinas each year, and we have done Charleston, Charlotte, and the Triangle. I have been pushing for Greenville for a long time, so we are happy it’s finally here,” Hughes says. “It wouldn’t be here if there weren’t a lot of big things happening in Greenville. I think it will be very beneficial for the city, as well as ULI.

“It’s incredible what Greenville has done to make downtown into a dynamic, festive, and walkable community. Many people in the Carolinas don’t know Greenville the way that we do,” he adds.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Leading the Region Forward,” which will focus on building the regional economy, sustaining success, and collaborating across disciplines. The meeting is open to both members and nonmembers.
