What to Expect at the 2024 NIC Fall Conference

The NIC is Unique

Attending a NIC conference is known to be an efficient three-day opportunity for networking, relationship building, and deal-making for senior executives in the senior housing and care industry.


A Variety of Efficient Networking
The primary benefit of attending “the NIC” is efficient networking — specifically to make new connections, develop relationships, and broker deals. NIC provides conference attendees unique opportunities to foster results-oriented networking, and unlike typical conferences, there are no trade show exhibit halls with senior executive staff reactively waiting for people to stop by.

NIC creates a distinctive atmosphere helpful to a variety of networking types from informal to formal. To facilitate relationship building, the conference provides all attendees with informal networking lounges, and receptions. Additionally, NIC Partners and Sponsors can secure private meeting rooms and huddle spaces in advance to provide a more conducive place for business discussions and negotiations.

C-Suite Attendees from Across the Industry
With over 70% of conference attendees from C-Suite and senior executives, and a balanced ratio of capital providers to developers and operators seeking capital, you can be sure that you’re in the room with the right people to build relationships and finalize transactions.

Careful Curated Thought Leadership
Not only is “the NIC” known for its powerful networking opportunities and outcomes, but for convening senior housing and care thought leaders who deliver relevant, timely, and actionable insights and strategies. The educational program helps inform strategy as organizations navigate the rapid change and disruption in the market. Sessions, set in a comfortable lounge area, are non-concurrent allowing you to balance networking and hearing from thought leaders.

Program Overview

Acclimation for First-time Attendees
Even those attendees who are new to “the NIC” have opportunities to quickly acclimate to the conference both before and during it. Prior to the conference, first-time attendees (FTA) can attend a webinar designed to help navigate the event to get the most out of it. Additionally, attendees have access to the attendee listing made available through the conference app to help find resources, make connections, and secure appointments prior to arriving onsite. Once onsite, attendees are invited to join the FTA gathering to hear directly from and meet NIC senior staff and volunteer leaders.
