A conference for real estate investors will hit downtown Grand Rapids this week.
The Michigan Landlord & Real Estate Investor Conference & Expo begins Thursday at DeVos Place.

The event is open to the public and free.
It will feature seven national speakers: Robyn Thompson; Jeffrey Taylor; Vena Jones-Cox; Brad Sumrok; Tom Zeeb; Tony Youngs; and Sue Hoyuela.
They’ll discuss topics ranging from wholesaling to rehabbing and flipping to Airbnb.
