Over the course of three days, conference attendees will choose several educational sessions to attend from an extensive list of industry related learning opportunities. In addition to the educational sessions, attendees will explore the expo floor and attend various networking events including the “Anniversary Party” which will be held at One Atlantic at the Pier at Caesars.

The NJAA Annual Conference and Expo is attended by apartment professionals who own and/or manage more than 200,000 apartments. Each year, exhibitors present the latest technology, products and services, providing a means of generating new revenue and reducing costs.
