The LeaseHawk team is proud to be a part of the upcoming 2019 NMHC OPTECH Conference and Expo.

It won’t be long until the best and brightest professionals in multifamily gather together in Dallas, Texas to discuss the latest innovations for our industry.

This year, as you explore the Expo floor, you can look forward to seeing more than 130 exhibitors showcasing their latest solutions. It’s sure to be filled with lots of leasing tips, tech and bots—oh my! So, how do you navigate your way through this yellow brick road of vendor booths? Follow this guide, so you can get the most out of your conference experience.

Use the Expo Map

This sounds simple, but we can’t tell you how many attendees aimlessly peruse the Expo floor. By making a plan of which vendors you’d like to learn more from, you’ll have more time to attend sessions, and for enjoying that cocktail during Opening Reception!

Here are a few noteworthy booths that will get your leasing-wheels turning while at the Expo:

  • Services & Amenities – HelloPackage, Booth #455: If your properties are inundated by residents’ packages, check out HelloPackage and their unique locker-less solution for managing deliveries to your properties.
  • Marketing & Advertising – LeaseHawk, Booth #315: Leasing offices miss nearly 49% of all calls. That’s a lot of missed leasing opportunity and wasted ad dollars. Save your budget and time with LeaseHawk’s Performance Platform. The software helps you to optimize the key areas that impact leasing success—your marketing and your people.
  • Property & Operations Management – Henri, Booth #400: This isn’t your boring, ordinary way to collect rent and maintenance requests. This software gives residents a way to connect—and even date each other.

Schedule OPTECH Vendor Meetings in Advance

The Expo floor will be flooded with more than 1,000 attendees. It can be a challenge to get quality one-on-one time with vendors. Don’t be shy to contact vendors in advance. Let them know you’re interested and would like to stop by to learn more or see a demo in-person.

A great time to schedule a vendor meeting will be during “Quiet Hours” in the Expo. New to OPTECH this year, the Quiet Hours will take place on Tuesday, November 12 from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM.

Quiet Hours will take place on Tuesday, November 12 from 3:00 PM – 5:00 PM.

During this time, the Expo will remain open, but exhibitors are not required to remain in their booths, allowing them the opportunity to attend and network within the conference sessions taking place. Exhibitors who opt to remain in their booths may use this downtime to schedule meetings or longer demos, catch up on work, or simply take a break and relax.
