Urban Spaceship is a day-long national urbanism conference curated by NAIOP Wisconsin and NEWaukee. The Urban Spaceship Conference explores the intersection of people and place and does a deep dive on top trends, and future ideas, in urbanism. This year, the theme of the conference is “Growing Milwaukee to a Million Person City.” This theme corresponds with new Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson’s vision of growing Milwaukee to over a million residents.

Talk topics will focus on several different aspects of how to make this goal a reality, including real estate development, sustainability, economic development, placemaking, city planning, and transportation planning.
