Last week’s annual NMHC Student Housing Conference and Exposition in New Orleans drew the biggest crowd ever in the
event’s 14-year history.
The student housing market continues to perform extremely well, driving appetite for more investment in the sector from capital sources, as well as supplier partners.
This hunger for deals was a common theme on the program, which covered the sector’s demand outlook, capital flows, design trends, operational challenges and more.
Given this climate, the fast-pitch DealTank competition was another success, with four of the competitors earning invites to another round of discussion with executives from the judges panel.
The exhibit hall also provided a great opportunity for student housing executives to network and explore new products and services.
Here are just a few of the main themes and key takeaways.
Our photographer captured the best moments of the meeting and expo, including keynote speaker Ross Shafer, the DealTank face off and more.

NMHC thanks all its sponsors, speakers and participants for contributing to another high-quality Student Housing Meeting.
We hope to see everyone next month in Dallas for the 2016 NMHC OPTECH Conference & Exposition.
