Shouldn’t always stay in Vegas, especially when it’s educational!
The 2015 National Apartment Association (NAA) Education Conference & Exposition was held June 24-27 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Convention Center in Las Vegas. According to their website, The NAA is America’s leading advocate for quality rental housing. NAA’s mission is to serve the interests of multifamily housing owners, managers, developers and suppliers and maintain a high level of professionalism in the multifamily housing industry to better serve the rental housing needs of the public. As a federation of nearly 170 state and local affiliates, NAA is comprised of over 67,000 members representing more than 7.6 million apartment homes throughout the United States and Canada.
RestoreCore was at this year’s exposition, working under Restoration Affiliates (RA), of which we are a founding member. RestoreCore’s President Andrew Goldberg worked alongside Steve Sorkin of ARS Restoration Specialists, another company in RA. Together, they offered a presentation on Disaster Planning.
Over 9,200 attended the conference and RA was represented by well placed banners and prominent advertising. Below, you will see the giant RA 4 foot tall by 20 foot long banner that every attendee walked under on their way to and from the trade show and general sessions.
The NAA Exposition is an annual event and this year, every aspect of the industry was represented by over 448 companies and 1,039 booths. On their website, NAA President & CEO Doug Culkin, CAE describes the conference as showcasing “the best and brightest that our industry has to offer, bringing together apartment developers, builders, owners, property fee managers, onsite personnel and supplier partners from around the world who are working together to provide quality rental housing”.
Next year’s NAA Education Conference & Exposition will be held June 15-18 in San Francisco and Andy and Steve are already planning on returning.
