4 Key Reasons Why You Can’t Afford to Miss NAA Apartmentalize This Year

How long has it been since you’ve seen your closest friends? We’re such a tight industry: You know you want the face time! We’ll be at Apartmentalize in Chicago on Aug. 31-Sept. 2 and ResMan would love to see you. Register here.

Don’t Be Left Behind

The industry has changed so much since we last met for Apartmentalize in 2019. This year, find out about all the new ways our industry is looking at marketing, touring, property management software, hiring, staffing, and slicing and dicing data – not to mention sustainability, regulations, HR, even waste management and more.

For example, explore what “the decade of digital authenticity” means to us and discover the top 20 trends that will shape the next 10 years. From hyper-automation to multi-experience technology, life as we know it is about to change in a big way. Don’t get left behind with old ideas.

It’s time to create a roar again in the ’20s. If you miss this opportunity, you have to wait until next June.

Make New Friends

Do you have new hires from the past two years who are relatively new to the apartment industry? Show them how we network.

Apartmentalize is the ideal baptism into the multifamily housing industry. Everyone is so friendly and helpful – ask any attendee and it’s likely they’ll tell you a story about the time they originally connected with their peers during this biggest national trade show in apartment property management.

The onsite management and service provider connections you meet this year will become friends you meet here every year – for life.

Escape Your Surroundings

Chicago is open to the public. It’s one of the grandest cities in the country. So much to do (and so many great places to eat!) Ever try “real” Chicago-style pizza? Long-time Chicago resident Apartment All-Star Lisa Trosien, who will be a presenter at two breakout sessions this year, recommends that you stay on Michigan Avenue’s glorious Magnificent Mile – it highlights Chicago in all its glory – and is just a mile or two shuttle ride from Apartmentalize’s host center McCormick Place.

Lisa also says that Chicago has been one of the most cautious cities in the country since the pandemic. Even if you are nervous, rest assured she says at least three-fourths of people in Illinois are voluntarily still wearing masks.

The National Apartment Association is providing a record number 106 sessions. There are tracks for Executive, Operations, Professional Development, Marketing, Student Housing, Independent Rental Owner, Leadership, Industry Trends, Maintenance, Affordable Housing, Technology, Human Resources, Research, Military Housing.
