NEW ORLEANS/ Sept. 8, 2017 (StlRealEstate.News) — The multifamily housing industry is a highly fragmented market, which has seen a vast array of changes over the last decade. Economic shifts, technological innovations, and changing social trends have disrupted the status quo, but the market is still thriving. Today, 39 million Americans call an apartment home, and the industry is responsible for contributing over $3.5 billion to the economy daily.
Through it all, two multifamily industry thought-leaders — both with unique positions in the market — have gotten together monthly for the past ten years to discuss the rapid changes as they happen. On Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. ET on MultifamilyBiz.com, the largest media platform in the multifamily housing industry, the pair will present their 100th webcast together, reaching a truly iconic milestone in their passion project.
Property management expert, Ernest F. Oriente, of PowerHour and multifamily technology innovator, Kerry W. Kirby, CEO of 365 Connect will launch their Centennial Edition Webcast, Tech Trends and Topics, to discuss the shifts they have seen in the market over their decade long collaboration. The webcast will explore topics the duo has delved into over the years including mobile, social media, UX design, SEO, vendor relationships, and recruiting.
Kirby explained, “Ernest and I have been sitting in a front row seat for the past decade, watching the trends in the market. We started this journey with a mission to not only provide information on the latest trends, but also to deliver an educational component. There are over 12 million professionals that serve our industry, and we have been both honored and humbled by the magnitude of audience attendance each month, as well as by those who utilize our webcast’s material to better prepare themselves for the evolving changes in the multifamily housing industry.”
Oriente responded, “We both continue to discover new innovations in the industry as we highlight time-tested methods that better serve residents, build teams, and manage processes. We strive to bring a balance of diverse content to our audience so they may accommodate the unprecedented growth in the industry, fueled by the next generation of renters.”
In their special centennial webcast, the duo plans to examine the significance of technology in modern multifamily housing operations and innovative growth strategies for gaining traction in the market; all while nostalgically recalling their hot, and not-so-hot predictions of the past. With a combined experience of almost 50 years in the multifamily housing industry, Oriente and Kirby are pleased to present the 100th episode of their informative, thorough, and thought-provoking webcast.
