Celebrating 50 Years of NAIOP

Posted on June 22, 2017

NAIOP celebrates 50 years of advocacy, education and professional excellence.

NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, began in 1967, when nine owners and developers of industrial parks in the eastern U.S. first met on September 12, 1967, near Philadelphia. Their goal was to support the emerging niche of industrial parks by addressing the need for standardized covenants and restrictions, building requirements and beneficial legislation and taxation.

Since its earliest years, NAIOP has attracted members who are committed to creating a top-quality built environment, entrepreneurial in spirit and eager to learn from and share with their colleagues. While the group was initially founded to combat unnecessary regulation, its focus grew to include information sharing and education about best practices in CRE development, operations and investment. It has done this through face-to-face gatherings that include conferences, roundtables, briefings and educational programs, as well as through publications that include Development magazine, research reports, white papers and more. In recent years, these efforts have expanded to include a broad range of online offerings.
