We recently returned from the National Retail Tenants Association conference, Expanding Knowledge 2014: A Summit for Learning, in Reno, Nevada. Accruent was proud to be a platinum sponsor of the three-day event and had a great time participating in sessions that covered best practices for managing commercial lease portfolios.

The panel presentation “Running a Real Estate Department” provided interesting insight into how the panelists’ departments are organized, how they align with corporate goals and how to motivate people. They stressed the importance of finding internal partners and communicating how you create value for your company.

The panel was one of several educational options available to attendees – including 52 courses in 6 major tracks – that provided a forum to discuss solutions for the many issues facing lease administrators and commercial tenants. We also enjoyed the lively keynote focusing on generational differences in the workplace, as well as the opportunity to mingle with our customers and other attendees at several networking events.

We’d like to say congratulations to our prize winners from the receptions on Sunday and Monday night! People had the opportunity to stop by our booth and enter to win gift cards as well as two iPad minis. It’s great that we were able to generate so much excitement and we’re happy for the 10 lucky winners!

Keep an eye out for us at NRTA’s next conference in September 2015 in Orlando, Florida. For more information on NRTA and their upcoming conferences, visit
