We weren’t fortunate enough to travel to Boston for NAA this year. Honestly, watching our Facebook friends post status updates about their travel and arrival at Logan Airport, photos from hotel room windows with great views (like Israel Carunungan’s)
We even saw #NAAEduConf actually trend on Twitter on the opening day! Very cool.
As we sweated out another hot summer week in the Mid-Atlantic, we did what all multifamily technology nerds would do who couldn’t attend… we watched the events on social media! Here’s what were able to learn through social media in the comfort of our air-conditioned offices:
We didn’t get a massage, win any iPads, cash or even collectable swag. While our feet didn’t hurt and we didn’t stay up past our bedtimes, we have both concluded that nothing beats being there in person. We missed the full content of the sessions, interacting directly with our vendor partners and sharing thoughts and ideas in more than just 140 key strokes. So while we enjoyed our social adventure, we will follow Tom Brokaw’s advice to reach out and really touch… so next year you will see both of us in San Diego!
What were your big takeaways? We’d love to get comments from those of you who were there!
Thanks for stopping by!
