Identify Strategic Partners

Forget walking an exhibit hall or sitting through hours of boardroom presentations! We curate a diverse group of leading suppliers and you are able to schedule one-on-one time with only the ones that suit your needs.

Memorable Networking

Wouldn’t it be fun to travel to a resort destination and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! We know that a prime reason people attend conferences is to network. Which is why we carefully consider the social activities that take place at the forum.

Lessons from the University of Houston in Disaster Recovery

At HEFF'18, we got an inside look at how the University of Houston’s facilities leaders tackle disasters in a presentation by Dave Oliver and Dave Irvin. Being previously hit by Tropical Storm Allison and Hurricane Harvey, the university takes robust measures in order to be prepared.

"A fantastic event, with relevant topics, strong suppliers, and great social time with peers. Very well organized and the shorter "ted-talk" style presentation was very good-- succinct and informative."
