3 Takeaways from the 2016 NAA Education Conference
I just left the NAA Education Conference in San Francisco where I’ve been learning and sharing with thousands of my fellow colleagues in the industry. I also attended the MTEC Conference for the first time which is a really great place to see where technology is heading in our industry.
Three things stood out to me:
1. The sharing economy is here to stay. I wish I could predict how market forces, regulatory decisions and industry policy will resolve themselves. But like file sharing in the ’90s and rating sites in the ‘00s, it’s generally a fool’s errand to try to stop technological and sociological macro forces. There were several short-term stay sharing companies I ran into, and also a few looking at sharing other resources. The most intriguing, at least for urban markets, is parking spot sharing. The bottom line is that sharing is going on, so I continue to advocate that we figure out how to leverage this trend rather than resist it.
