Every day, the Rent Manager team works hard to bring you new features, keep you updated, and help you make the most of your software. Once a year, we bring together hundreds of Rent Manager customers and partners for the Rent Manager User Conference (RMUC)—a week packed full of learning, exciting new feature announcements, and can’t-miss networking. Whether you joined us in Las Vegas or not, we’re excited to share the details of the events, revelations, and experiences of RMUC.19!
The Rent Manager User Conference is educational and informative, but it’s also filled with fun, networking, and plenty of inspiration for attendees to do big things when they return to their offices. Every conference is kicked-off with an Opening Reception, and this year’s “Splashback in Time” event was a vintage shindig of peachy-keen proportions. Hosted poolside, attendees had the chance to mix and mingle with fellow attendees from a variety of backgrounds and locations.
Likewise, the RMUC Premier Social Event kept the networking (and the party) going strong the following evening. This year’s theme was “Party Like Gatsby” and participants decked themselves out in perfect 1920’s style. With a mustache booth, dancing, and actors playing the part, we felt transported to the decade of glitz and jazz.
And though we like to have fun while at the RMUC, it doesn’t hurt to gain a little inspiration from someone who has paved their own path. This year, we had the first-ever Speaker Showcase, featuring basketball legend, Bill Walton. Those in attendance left inspired to be the best leaders and co-workers within our departments, companies, and the property management industry.
Finally, we closed out RMUC.19 with genuine Las Vegas flair with the help of magician and comedian, Rob Anderson! From his mystifying illusions to his uncanny wit, it was the perfect way to close out a fantastic and insightful week in the Entertainment Capital of the World. Throughout the conference, attendees had the chance to win numerous amazing prizes and the big-ticket items were raffled off at the Closing Ceremony. Some prizes included a $1,500 Best Buy gift card, Yeti Cooler, Nespresso Machine, Fitbit Versa Smart Watch, a drone, designer handbags and more! It was truly a year to win big at the RMUC!
With 12 Rent Manager User Conferences under our belt, we’ve presented hundreds of informative sessions throughout the years. From scripting to Human Resources to Fair Housing Act compliance, our goal is to address any topic that will help your business continue to grow. This year, we instructed more than 940 Rent Manager users and served up 81 sessions with 8 customized learning tracks. On top of that, we hosted a full-day Rent Manager Bootcamp and launched the Rent Manager Certification Program—a hands-on, activity-driven assessment system that tests users’ ability to perform critical tasks in Rent Manager and prove their prowess with the program.
Every year, LCS President and CEO, Dave Hegemann, takes the stage for the RMUC Keynote Presentation. This highly anticipated session provides an insider’s look at what attendees can expect from sessions throughout the week and what’s on the horizon for Rent Manager and it’s parent company, LCS.
