What exactly is the Leasing Bootcamp?
The TPCO Leasing Bootcamp is a brand new and exciting event we’re launching to provide the star leasing professionals in our company the opportunity to learn new sales techniques and strategy, and hear from experts both within and outside of the student housing industry. The ultimate goal is for each attendee to take the content they learn throughout the Leasing Bootcamp back to their respective properties and share it with their colleagues so all team members can sign more leases both easier and faster! A detailed Leasing Bootcamp agenda will be sent out at a later time.
When is the Leasing Bootcamp?
Monday November 11th and through Wednesday November 13th.
The opening Bootcamp session will begin on Monday will begin at 1:30 pm and the Bootcamp will end Wednesday at 1:00 pm.
Where is the Leasing Bootcamp?
The Leasing Bootcamp will be hosted in Raleigh, NC at The Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel (4100 Main at North Hills St, Raleigh, NC 27609). The hotel will be the location for the Bootcamp as well as your lodging.
When you arrive to the hotel on Monday, check in may not be available yet. If that’s the case, please check your bag in with the front desk and proceed to the ballroom our sessions will be in.
The hotel is located within the Shops at North Hills, which offers a collection of restaurants and shops at your convenience.
What does my registration cover?
Your travel expenses (flight or mileage), hotel lodging, and meals during the conference will be covered.
We will also be mailing you a pre-paid Visa Gift Card the week prior to the Bootcamp. You will be able to use this for any meals during your travel to and from Raleigh.
Will I have a roommate?
Yes, most of you have been assigned to a double room with another person. Roommate assignments will be sent out at a later time.
What should I wear?
We encourage you to dress business casual but also want you to dress comfortably. Please remember you are representing both your personal and property’s brand and we expect you to dress in the same fashion you would if you were engaging with a prospect, resident, or parent.
*ALSO: If you have previously attended a Preiss Company conference and have your lanyard pins, please bring them with you to attach to your Leasing Bootcamp lanyard.
What do I need to bring to the Bootcamp sessions?
Other than something to take notes on, nothing! We respectfully ask you refrain from using any electronics (laptop, phone, tablet) during the sessions in order to remain focused and engaged. We understand you may need to check in with your property or send some e-mails, but we ask you do so during designated breaks that will be scheduled throughout the day.
What’s the weather going to be like?
For the month of November, average high temperatures in Raleigh usually range from the 50 to 60-degree range. Low temperatures usually drop into the 40’s and sometimes into the upper 30’s.
Also, please remember the ballroom may get a little chilly, so you may want to have a sweater or jacket handy just in case!
Will there be after-hours events?
Yes, we have some fun evening networking events planned for Monday and Tuesday which will include dinner. On Tuesday evening, we will have an Awards Dinner where we will recognize various employees and properties for earning milestones and achievements.
