Networking Innovations Add Value at the NIC Spring Conference

Business Environment  |  Senior Housing

Each spring thousands of leaders in seniors housing and healthcare convene for 3 days of collaboration and education at the NIC Spring Conference. Attendees expand their networks, make lasting professional connections, explore partnerships, and learn about recent trends in the industry.

This year’s 2020 NIC Spring Conference: Investing in Seniors Housing & Healthcare Collaboration — March 4-6 in San Diego, CA — offers innovative new options that make it easier than ever to connect with peers and potential partners.

To ensure conference attendees connect efficiently and effectively throughout the event, “the NIC” features welcome and networking receptions, networking breakfasts and breaks, meet up points, and the highly effective networking lounges. Plus, the conference mobile app and attendee list is provided to all conference registrants in advance of the event to allow for meeting planning and scheduling with ease.


New this year, NIC is launching braindate, a platform that facilitates experiential peer learning during the conference. Braindate will help attendees find and start conversations with other attendees who share interests or challenges for topic-driven, learning-focused conversations. Exploring partnership opportunities between healthcare organizations and seniors housing? Use braindate to break the ice and maximize networking at the 2020 NIC Spring Conference. Braindates can be scheduled using the conference mobile app, with details available on our website.

“Talk to Me About” Ribbon Wall

As conference attendees arrive on site, they’ll be invited to visit the Ribbon Wall where they can select a topic to display on their conference badge. Topics provide effective ice-breakers for fellow attendees with similar interests.

Thematic Networking

Two major networking receptions at the conference will feature thematic and geographical drivers designed to encourage discussion. The opening night’s reception will prompt discussions on seniors housing, skilled nursing, and healthcare collaboration. The following morning’s networking breakfast will offer the opportunity to gather with attendees from common regions of the country.

New Conference App Platform

The conference mobile app is the source of conference details and updates, conveniently available to attendees. The new platform for the 2020 Spring Conference mobile app will further enhance attendees’ ability to navigate all the event has to offer, including scheduling meetings with fellow attendees.

Huddle Spaces

A new feature of the Networking Lounge is a section for dedicated Huddle Space. These reservable sections of the Networking Lounge offer an effective place to conduct meetings as they provide a table, seating for six, power outlets, and storage for materials.

The 2020 NIC Spring Conference will build efficiencies in value-based care collaborations while providing the most recent trends on the real-estate based landscape. Register today, and learn how others are leading the way to prepare for — and effectively confront — the challenges of today and tomorrow in seniors housing and healthcare.
