2021 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show Call for Presentations

FAA News ,

The Florida Apartment Association is asking multifamily industry professionals to propose educational sessions for the 2021 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show. FAA wants to provide its members with educational and innovative speaker sessions that will actively engage and inform members. Speakers and sessions should stimulate discussions and address topics that directly impact members and all aspects of the multifamily industry. Please note: The call for presentations is for apartment industry management and supplier members only. Some restrictions apply to proposals from supplier members (see below). Professional speakers and speaker agencies should email Ralph Robinson, FAA director of meetings, at ralph@faahq.org.

Event Details

The 2021 FAA Annual Conference & Trade Show gathers multifamily industry professionals from across the state to engage in three days of educational sessions and events. The conference will take place October 13-15, 2021 at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Lake Buena Vista, Fla.

Conference attendees include property managers, leasing agents, executives, and staff from management companies, maintenance professionals, and industry suppliers. Members attend to improve their careers through professional development and peer collaboration. This is your opportunity to showcase your ideas to your peers and potential clients!

What We’re Looking For

FAA is focused on how individuals and ­companies can stay relevant through professional growth and development, no matter their experience or career level. FAA wants to provide sessions with practical solutions to common challenges that will have long-term career value.

Sessions should focus on trends, technology, and techniques vetted by theory, research, and practice. All presentations should highlight one of our nine industry-specific categories:

  • Affordable Housing
  • Risk Management
  • Revenue Management
  • Property Management
  • Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Marketing
  • Maintenance
  • Other

Attendees should be able to return to their organizations with a fresh perspective and the ability to implement change based on the knowledge they’ve gained through each session.

Supplier Proposal Guidelines

Suppliers to the multifamily industry are welcome to submit proposals for panel presentations. Panels may have only one representative from the submitting supplier company (the moderator). Each panel should include at least one customer or client from multifamily management. Supplier companies may not submit any promotional or advertising material. The proposed topic must be educational and relevant to the multifamily industry without explicitly promoting your company.

Submission Process

All submissions for sessions and speaker proposals must be submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Incomplete, late, or promotional submissions will not be considered.

Proposals will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • Relevance to multifamily housing industry
  • Intelligent and clearly articulated submission materials
  • Presenter/speaker qualifications
  • Usefulness of information for attendees to apply to daily work life
  • Appropriateness to an advanced audience
