    In order to make a hotel reservation request, you will need your Meeting Registration Confirmation Code found on your meeting registration confirmation.


    NMHC uses a centralized hotel reservation system to manage hotel reservations for all of our attendees at the NMHC Annual Meeting and the NMHC Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference.

    • Individuals must be registered for the NMHC Annual Meeting and/or Apartment Strategies Outlook Conference before they can reserve a hotel room.
    • Each individual will be limited to one hotel reservation.
    • No blocks of rooms can be reserved.

    Hotel reservation requests will be processed within 24 hours and confirmed within 14 business days. Note: there will be a longer processing period after the initial rush to book rooms in July. All hotel reservations will require a deposit in the amount equal to two nights (a first and last nights') deposit, and all cancellations made after December 8 will entail a forfeiture of this deposit.

    Ground Transportation

    The Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek and Waldorf Astoria are approximately 18 miles from Orlando International Airport. For those of you arriving by air, you have the following alternatives for ground transportation:

     

    • A taxi from Orlando International Airport will cost about $55 each way and will take approximately 25 minutes, depending on traffic. Taxi service can be found outside of Terminals A & B on the Ground Transportation Level.  
    • An alternative to taxi service is MEARS, a shared ride shuttle service that may make multiple stops.  The cost is $22/one way or $36/round trip per adult. For more information or to make a reservation, call 855/463-2776 or visit the MEARS website.

    As part of the celebration, NMHC will expand its partnership with the national non-profit organization Shelters to Shutters (S2S) in the fight to end homelessness through a new 40 for 40 campaign. S2S transitions individuals and families from homelessness to economic self-sufficiency by partnering with apartment operators to provide full-time employment and housing opportunities.

     

    The goal of the campaign is to sign up at least 40 new multifamily partners who will make a financial contribution to support the mission of S2S.

     

    Companies that sponsor with a $5,000 financial contribution or above will be recognized by both NMHC and Shelters to Shutters as an official 40 for 40 Partner throughout 2018.

     

    40 for 40 Partner Benefits:

     

    • Recognition on both the NMHC and S2S websites
    • Promoted via S2S social media channels
    • Mention in a press release
    • Acknowledged in the S2S annual report
    • Recognition in a special, dedicated email to NMHC members recognizing 40 for 40 Partners
    • Inclusion in scrolling PowerPoint presentations displayed before the start of each General Session at the 2018 NMHC meetings, beginning with the NMHC Spring Board of Directors Meeting in May 2018. 

     

    Current 40 for 40 Sponsors: 

     

    AvalonBay, CBRE, Colliers International, CORT, Cortland Partners, Cushman & Wakefield, Entrata, Equity Residential, Epoch Residential, Finlay Management, GID, Greystone, Klingbeil Capital Management, Matan Companies, Middleburg, Mosaic Residential, SARES*REGIS Group, Waterton, Yardi
