Event Description

ADU Academy is an educational event about ADUs for industry professionals. Specifically, it’s for designers, builders, entrepreneurs, developers, realtors, real estate investors, lenders and appraisers.

ADUs are a recently re-emerging housing phenomena with many distinctive development elements. The Academy provides detailed and expert insights about ADU development from industry practitioners who have first-hand experience in this growing market in the leading US market for ADUs. It will also provide a chance to network with a cohort of practitioners from across the country. 

This April, ADU Academy is being held in conjunction with ADU Open Doors. ADU Open Doors is a new 2-day free event where people will open up their ADUs to visitors around different Portland neighborhoods for a self-guided tour between 4pm-8pm on April 23rd and April 24th. As of March 1st, there are more than 20 ADUs being featured as a part of this event! It is free to attend this event.

Academy attendees coming from out of town are encouraged to arrive in Portland by the afternoon of Thursday, April 23rd to take full advantage of the open houses that are open beginning at 4pm. The ADUs being shown on April 23rd are a different set of ADUs that will be shown on April 24th.

The ADU Academy is an event designed for industry practitioners (designers, builders, entrepreneurs, developers, realtors, real estate investors, lenders and appraisers, and advocates), though anyone is welcome to register.
