The annual NIC spring conference of the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care will take place March 1-3 in San Diego.

A variety of educational sessions discussing care giving, administrative and capital accumulation issues anchor the conference. There will also be numerous lengthy networking socials and opportunities to enable better connections and deal making.

The NIC spring conference “is designed for anyone in healthcare or senior housing looking to connect, develop long-range strategic partnerships, and innovate new models of care and housing on behalf of older adults,” organizers say.

Mainstage topics at this annual NIC spring meeting will include:

  • Medicare Trends and why everyone, including PPSH should care and why it matters
  • Skilled nursing at home
  • Capital sources: What defines a quality operator
  • State of valuations
  • Behavioral health
  • New sources of equity that balance margin and mission
  • What makes a quality capital source?
  • Wellness revolution
  • Pioneers in senior housing disruption
  • Operations going forward

Organizers believe the primary benefit of attending an NIC conference is the efficient networking — specifically “to make new connections, develop relationships and broker deals.” The group provides 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, receptions, and small group braindate™ discussions focused on common topics of interest,” organizers emphasize.
