Event Description

Oregon’s Biggest Opportunity Zone Investor Conference Comes to Central Oregon!

This event is an extension of the OZ Investing events that the Rockwood CDC hosts in Portland.  Their first two conferences sold out and resulted in millions of dollars in deals between investors and developers.  Now Economic Development for Central Oregon brings this conference to Tetherow!

As a participant in this conference, you will go away with an understanding of

  • How you can defer or even eliminate capital gains taxes by investing your profits in opportunity zones.
  • What comprises an opportunity zone and why every astute investor with capital gains should be aware of it and considering it.
  • Why the first announced investments in Oregon have been in so much demand by investors.
  • How you can invest in emerging businesses or real estate opportunities through an opportunity zone investment.
  • How your opportunity zone investments can transform communities
