1. Next-Gen AI: Risks and Rewards


From nice-to-have to a neccessity, AI has found its way into multifamily, with chatbots and leasing assistants being some of the most common front-end solutions implemented across the industry. Now, with a better understanding of its potential applications, operators are looking to deploy AI-powered solutions to streamline other processes. Featuring LeaseLock’s CTO Sudip Shekhawat as the moderator, this session will discuss the potential of AI beyond leasing, and the challenges (like AI generated bias) standing in the way.

Bonus: The industry has only begun to tap the potential of AI tech and there’s a wealth of opportunities for its use beyond front-end applications. With new data strategies and an AI technology roadmap that encompasses core functions and back-end processes, operators can make informed, data-backed decisions to elevate and future-proof their assets.

2. The Big Risks Facing Multifamily & What to Do About Them


The current macroeconomic environment has put multifamily housing at heightened risk exposure. From cybersecurity, to fraud, and increasing financial pressures, leaders should continue to closely monitor developments in the market to protect their assets in the face of market uncertainty.

To bring light to the current multifamily risk landscape, attorneys, risk experts, and apartment operators will come together on day 2 to reveal the proposed regulations that are expected to make the biggest impact on business operations in the coming years, as well as the top strategies operators can deploy to mitigate rising risks.

Bonus: Whether this session fits into your OPTECH schedule or not, don’t miss the opportunity to prepare your properties for economic uncertainty and position your portfolio for optimized financial performance in 2023.

3. Integration Challenges and Solutions with New Technology


As multifamily tech stacks evolve, operators are met with the new challenges of technology integration. Integration is the cornerstone of any real estate technology solution—without the proper integration between software products, systems communicate under limited capacity, which can lead to inconsistencies that have a negative impact on a team’s efficiency and daily processes. This session will highlight real-world solutions that help software integrate more seamlessly and is a must-attend for operators looking to expand their tech stack in 2023.

Bonus: The rapid advancements of technology in the multifamily industry demand decision makers to develop a working knowledge of their capabilities. Understanding whether or not proptech solutions are completely integrated or simply interfacing is essential to ensuring your tech stack functions seamlessly. As you prepare to meet with proptech vendors at OPTECH, here’re the 5 essential questions you should ask to understand a product’s true capabilities.
