We are excited to bring you Brella networking app to maximize the efficiency of your networking experience at the 2021 NMHC Annual Meeting. Members will need to use Brella to reserve a table for one-on-one meetings, as many of the hotel’s common areas will be restricted.
Brella’s matchmaking algorithm allows you to find the most relevant connections from the event’s attendees. You can then chat and reserve a Brella table to meet with fellow attendees.

Brella requires an attendee to opt-in to networking to view or reach out to other attendees. We recommend you still opt-in to networking, but under the “Schedule” tab - > “Availability” set it to be “unavailable” every day. This way other attendees won’t be able to request a meeting with you, but you will still be able to reach out to individuals and set up meetings.
