Rental housing trade show tackles hot-button California rent control issue, legislation
LONG BEACH (MNS) — The Rental Housing Expo, a free premier business-to-business trade show, held its annual Multi-Family Rental Housing Trade Show, Sept. 18, at the Long Beach Convention Center.
Sponsored by the Apartment Association, California Southern Cities (AACSC), the expo serves developers, investors, and apartment owners looking for insights, resources, and prognostications in their field. The 2019 trade show attracted more than 700 attendees,
“This year’s event came at a key time in light of recent legislation, rent control and evictions,” said AACSC’s President Michael Brennan. “Property owners, management companies and investors will all be affected by these changes for years to come. Our trade show is a great opportunity for businesses and individuals to educate themselves and prepare for those changes.”
Multi-family housing continues to be a critical issue for many Californians. More than 64 percent of households in Los Angeles were occupied by renters, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.
Attendees sat in on multiple presentations throughout the day, ranging from topics such as earthquake retrofitting to upcoming tax implications for property owners. Guest speakers included: Ron Kingston of Sacramento’s California Strategic Advisers; Ali Sahabi, GEC of Optimum Seismic, Inc.; Susan Shelley of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association; and Dennis P. Block, Esq., of Dennis P. Block & Associates.
While the yearly trade show is free to the public, the AACSC offers multiple benefits to its members throughout the year, including free legal forms and counseling, seminars, classes and certifications.
