Newsom among speakers slated for expo

Thousands of urban planners, real estate executives and land-use policy wonks are set to descend upon San Francisco for a four-day conference hosted by the Urban Land Institute.

Mayor Gavin Newsom is one of the registered speakers expected to take part in the 2009 ULI Fall Meeting and Urban Land Expo, which is being held this year at the Moscone Center from Tuesday until Friday.

Newsom is scheduled to speak Wednesday afternoon before a keynote speech by Bill Emmott, former editor-in-chief of The Economist.

Roughly 5,700 executives from the private commercial real estate sector, city planners, architects and other land use experts have registered to attend from across the world, ULI spokesman Robert Krueger said.

The Urban Land Institute is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit with an international membership of 33,000 professionals that has focused on land use policy issues since it was founded in 1936.
