2018 NMHC Annual Meeting Recap
Former British Prime Minister David Cameron speaks with NMHC Chairwoman Sue Ansel at the 2018 Annual Meeting.

The who’s who of multifamily gathered in Orlando last week for the back-to-back 2018 NMHC Apartment Strategies and NMHC Annual Meeting events. Deal-making and networking were top of mind but so, too, was getting a handle on how the best in the business are looking to navigate the year ahead.

NMHC President Doug Bibby may have summed it up best in saying, “While the market fundamentals remain strong, the headwinds we have discussed in recent years have arrived, making yield a key focus.”

To help executives better prepare for the challenges and opportunities in the near term and beyond, NMHC assembled nearly 70 speakers across both events to share data, insight and perspectives. Former U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron closed out the week with discussions that spanned China, Brexit and the future of the euro, the Queen and even Britain’s housing challenges. Turns out things might not be all that different across the pond.

“We need to fix the regulatory environment to make it easier to build the units people need,” he said, adding, “You should have to prove why a development shouldn’t happen instead of why it should.”

NMHC also celebrated its 40th anniversary, with special entertainment featuring comedy duo Steve Martin and Martin Short and a new 40 for 40 initiative to fight homelessness with Shelters to Shutters.
