MAA Expo 2023

Several JMC employees had the opportunity to attend the 2023 MAA Expo at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston last week. JMC employees were able to network with others in the property management industry, engage with vendors, and become more knowledgeable on different topics through educational breakout sessions and presentations form keynote speakers.

The day began with educational breakout sessions on leasing strategies, social media, and risk management. Tan France was the keynote speaker in conversation with Ariel Foxman and France  spoke about his experiences in leading his own employees as a successful fashion designer and entrepreneur. Attendees were then welcomed to explore the tradeshow floor to discover new vendors and products. 

The afternoon involved additional breakout sessions on leveraging competitive advantage, recruitment and retention, preventative maintenance planning, and a case study on DEI. The day closed with a panel discussing a market overview of the industry. 

The combination of JMC staff in our varying roles resulted in many takeaways for the company and we look forward to attending the next expo in 2024!
