NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- 365 Connect, a leading provider of award-winning marketing, leasing and resident technology platforms for the multifamily housing industry, announced today that its CEO, Kerry W. Kirby, will serve as keynote speaker for a live webcast. The webcast, Multifamily Housing Tech Trends to Watch in 2019, is scheduled to air on Jan. 30, 2019, at 3 p.m. ET on MultifamilyBiz.com, the largest media platform in the multifamily housing industry.
Multifamily Housing Tech Trends to Watch in 2019 will deliver a comprehensive overview of some of the largest influences that will reshape the industry as we know it, from digital amenities to the share economy and disruptions in data. The webcast will delve into the monumental global changes in technology as well as shifting renter demographics, which are causing industry-wide transformations, including the need for more digital services to reach prospects and serve residents. In evaluating these shifts, this webcast explores the resurgence of drones, the explosive growth of home automation and alternative leasing methods to reach today's renters.
"The multifamily housing industry will experience rapid change in the new year," Kirby explained. "Amenitization is moving toward automation, mobile technology will experience unprecedented momentum with the introduction of 5G and the rideshare movement is impacting the footprint of apartment communities around the country. Next-generation renters are significantly affecting how we market our assets, transact business and interact online."
Joining Kirby is property management expert Ernest F. Oriente of PowerHour, an industry professional since 1988 and the author of SmartMatch Alliances. Oriente and Kirby have presented over 100 webcasts together, covering an array of topics from strategies on maintaining optimum performance of multifamily communities to the latest technology trends.

Oriente responded, "Kerry has his finger on the pulse of the latest innovations in the multifamily housing arena and I am excited to join him in this discussion of how technology innovation is reshaping our industry. As with all the material we produce, we strive to deliver attainable suggestions to our audience so that they may better accommodate the newest wave of developments in the market."
"Millennials and Generation-Z have clearly led the surge in rental housing – all while edging the paper-heavy, regulated world of rental housing into the 21st century," Kirby concluded. "Given the immense size of the modern-day rental market, we find it imperative for apartment community operators to make use of strategic, tech-driven amenities, services and marketing tactics to attract and retain next-generation renters. We are excited to share our knowledge of this subject with our industry peers."
