With so many Multifamily Conferences to Attend...Why This One?

What we do at the Multifamily Innovation® Summit is different from any event you will attend.

And….after attending will leave you saying “this is the one Multifamily event I can’t miss each year.”

How is this different from a big trade show or typical event with panels?

First, we meet with a diverse group of Multifamily Executives that are leading some of the largest and most innovative companies every Friday. We do this all year long through the Multifamily Innovation® Advisory Council.

We meet not just to identify the right technologies but understand how they work inside Multifamily businesses.

Council members are learning to avoid pitfalls, implement new processes, structure communication to their teams, and gain insights from big Multifamily operators on what they are learning through the programs they implement. It’s peer to peer networking at its finest. Executive leaders are meeting new peers that share the same goals.

Each week these discussions are with Multifamily Executives that are in the trenches with their teams. These are peer to peer discussions from those deeply invested in the process.

They’re sharing their results, challenges, and their opportunities ahead.

At the Summit, we will bring these big ideas that we develop together all year long to the annual Multifamily Innovation® Summit. Through the council is how we scout and discover speakers for our events.

This event is our opportunity to share with the world the proven best practices for the collision taking place with technology, multifamily operations, and leadership.

This event will help people get a better inside look at Multifamily Operations so that better products emerge in the market and are ready are for acceptance.

Why is this important for Multifamily Executives?

You are out of time, can’t attend every sales demo, and need to think strategically about what to do next to support your vision.

You respect and value peer to peer discussions from people moving through similar technologies and processes that can accelerate growth and minimize risk in your business.

You understand that investors, lenders, and employees want to work with companies that have the right strategies in place to serve the customer of today and tomorrow.

Additionally, you can’t learn everything inside sales conversations. These sales demos and meetings only go so far and you purchase products that don’t do what they promised. This process ties up an enormous amount of payroll to discover and then customize products for your business.

Why is this important to the Technology Provider/Vendor?

You get access to top Multifamily Executives that are motivated to build a modern business.

You and your product team get access to a feedback loop to understand the business better. This is an event you want to send your product teams to attend, not just sales people.

No need to give up equity in your product to access this type of feedback.

You will learn all about implementations, pilot programs, and what makes them successful from the operators point of view.

You and your teams will have better insights into how operators design their workflows, direct their teams, and how they communicate product roll outs.

Knowing this can support your sales and implementation teams for designing successful roll outs that don’t distract from core business initiatives.

What are we learning inside the Multifamily Innovation® Advisory Council?

These weekly meetings tell us that technology providers are spending time trying to go to market hiring salespeople trying to get these Multifamily Executives inside these demo conversations.

However, the deep understanding of how these organizations operate is requiring in some cases, customizations to products for them to work effectively.

This is more cost to the technology provider and their engineering teams. Get out in front of these deep customizations and discover how products need to work and the use cases for certain levels of employees.

Every company is different so it’s tough to build products. When you understand the different asset classes across portfolios, how they operate, and clarity around their investment objectives this will allow you to get products accepted faster and without unnecessary costs.

Attend to get better with the collision between these new technology providers and operators.

You will leave with even more friends, new business, and a better understanding of the realities of the Multifamily Business Operator so you can work together to make the Multifamily Industry and our businesses even better.
