MILWAUKEE — Peter Feigin, president of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Steve Rushin, former SI.com columnist and National Sportswriter of the Year, will each deliver keynotes at Marquette University’s 10th annual Real Estate Strategies Conference, which will be presented in a virtual format on Thursday, April 22, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Center for Real Estate in the College of Business Administration hosts the annual event and has partnered with Marquette Law School’s National Sports Law Institute for this year’s topic, “Sports, Entertainment and Real Estate Development.”
Registration is free and open to the public.
Professional sports stadiums are becoming lynchpins of real estate development in cities across the U.S. No longer just large bowls of seats surrounded by parking lots, these "third spaces" driven by sporting events and concerts are now including more integrated real estate development strategies, transforming these areas into destinations for office, hotel, retail and other year-round uses.
Driven by ownership groups with long-term investment time horizons, these developments are redefining economic development and becoming more and more central parts of our lives. Learn more from panels and speakers, made up of executives from the major sports leagues, about their visions for real estate development and plans for the future.

Through innovative teaching, research and outreach, the Center for Real Estate aims to deepen commercial real estate knowledge at Marquette, in Milwaukee, across the Midwest and throughout the nation. Ranked among the top undergraduate commercial real estate programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report, Marquette’s is the only commercial real estate program offered at a Catholic and Jesuit university, uniquely grounding everything the center does in a solid foundation of business principles, ethics, and an environment that engages students, professionals and academics alike.
The NSLI also provides a national forum for discussion and thoughtful consideration of American and international sports issues and encourages input by persons and organizations with a wide range of viewpoints. The NSLI seeks to promote a legal environment in which sports at all levels of competition will flourish. In an effort to achieve these goals, the NSLI sponsors high-quality national conferences and symposia and promotes knowledge through publication of thoughtful scholarship in the Marquette Sports Law Review. It also serves as a resource for the media and public.
