We arrived at the National Apartment Association Education Conference and Expo yesterday in the very hot Las Vegas! This is my first time in Sin City so I was afraid that the lights and spectacles would distract me from really absorbing this whole experience, but I can honestly tell you that they have not. It has been quite the opposite! All of the industry experts, booths and events have distracted me from Vegas!
Although the large booths and creative advertising are very cool, it is the people here who are most impressive. I attended my first education session this morning, which was presented by our own Chris Brown and Princeton Properties, Sarah Greenough, on capturing prospects with your website. It was a packed house! I was so pleased to see so many excited and eager to learn industry professionals first thing in the morning. I think this speaks volumes for this event and our industry. I am excited to see what I learn this week and share it with all of you!
