Event Recap: Future Cities

Dear OC Forum Community,

On Thursday, August 22, Emile Haddad (Chairman & CEO, FivePoint), Robert Stone (President & CEO, City of Hope) and Andy Cohen (Co-CEO, Gensler) joined us for an interdisciplinary discussion at our Future Cities: Essential Elements for Building and Maintaining a World-Class Quality of Life luncheon at the Hilton Irvine.

The sold-out luncheon, with presenting sponsor FivePoint and promotional sponsors Orange County Realtors and ULI Orange County/Inland Empire, joined together 280 members and guests from numerous industries throughout the county and was the largest attended OC Forum program of the year. 

The all-star panel, which was moderated by Steve PonTell (President & Chairman, National CORE), touched on issues that crossed industries and disciplines as they discussed the innovative steps they're taking to ensure our communities stay relevant for current and future generations.
