LeaseCon/TurnCon 2021: Helping Student Housing Operators Navigate the Challenges of Leasing and Turn

December 15, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 3:30 pm

Involved in student housing leasing or turn? Join Student Housing Business and the InterFace Conference Group for the 3rd annual LeaseCon/TurnCon conference on December 15th in Dallas at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel.

“After a year off last year we are very excited to bring back LeaseCon and to introduce TurnCon,” says Richard Kelley, publisher of Student Housing Business and senior vice president of the InterFace Conference Group for France Media. “There is a lot of overlap between marketing, leasing and turn, and this will allow us to bring even more professionals together and provide an enhanced educational and networking experience for all involved. And with all of the changes to marketing and leasing that came about from COVID, plus the impact of the supply chain situation on turn, there is a lot to talk about.”

The conference, “LeaseCon/TurnCon: Helping Student Housing Operators Navigate the Challenges of Leasing and Turn,” will feature two tracks running simultaneously but will have only one registration fee. Attendees are welcome to attend panel sessions related to both topics. LeaseCon/TurnCon will kick off with roundtables and a joint opening networking reception on the evening of December 14th.

The conference will bring together everyone involved in the leasing and turn process, from property-level leasing reps and managers to corporate execs, as well as the many consultants, service providers and vendors allied to the space.

“Our primary purpose and goal with this event remains the same — we want to help owners and operators figure out the most efficient and cost-effective ways to get ‘heads in beds’ and run the most cost-effective and efficient turn process,” adds Kelley. “We hope companies will send multiple members of their leasing and management teams to attend, and we have a team registration tier to help facilitate that.”
