The NMHC Student Housing Conference is the premier event that serves as a platform to share the most up-to-date industry information, products and services. The sector's leading owners, developers, managers, lenders, brokers and university partners will be there – in short, the people with decision making authority. 

 

New Exhibit Booth Size Option! In 2016 only, we are offering a new booth size. These Plus Booths are 10' x 10' plus 8' x 6'.  These booths are great if you have a traditional 10' x 10' booth design and also need a little additional space in your booth. 

 

Note: The Plus Booths are the booths on the floor plan that have an "A" booth next to them (i.e. 100/100A, 200/200A and 201/201A).  These booths are not sold as 10' x 10' booths.
