Need help to justify your attendance? 

NRTA's Curriculum Committee members developed a new tool to help you justify your attendance through evaluating the potential Return on Investment (ROI) of attending this year’s conference! A simple ROI Calculator helps tie a value to the benefit generated by NRTA conference attendance and allows your employer to see the net return to your company’s bottom line. Go ahead, do your own math! Help your employer with making this go/no-go decision. Simply download, complete, and present.

In addition to the quantifiable ROI, this education forum offers valuable opportunities to network with your peers in retail and corporate real estate and to keep up with the latest trends and best practices in the profession. Be sure to visit our Getting Approval page for more suggestions.
