SHDA’s flagship event, the National Developers’ Convention (NatCon), is an annual gathering of real estate developers, policymakers, suppliers, and other industry stakeholders. In partnership with the DHSUD, the convention provides an opportunity to discuss macro trends, current issues and challenges, new methods and products, and future directions for the industry. The two-day event includes keynote presentations, plenary and breakout sessions, and networking opportunities.
In 2021, the first-ever virtual NatCon had a record-breaking 7,000 participants. While in 2022, the convention was held at the Grand Hyatt in BGC and attracted close to 400 delegates, speakers, and media, with participants describing it as “successful, insightful, and fun.”
