KEYNOTE: THE FUTURE OF HOME DELIVERY as a Master Planned Community Developer
From state-of-the-art homes to the innovation centers of tomorrow, Tavistock Development Company looks to the future of design, technology and human experience. Craig will kick things off by sharing insights gained developing Lake Nona, an innovative master planned community in Orlando, and how that experience is shaping things to come.
STRATEGIC COMMUNICATIONS: How to Make Friends + Influence (Important) People
Housing is complex, with multiple players who often have very different perspectives and (sometimes) competing agendas. The right message, medium and approach can make all the difference in your ability to win over important people—such as local zoning officials, trades, other partners, and customers—and get them to do what you want. See how innovative communications approaches and smart use of technology can allow you to capture the attention of time-starved audiences, be more productive and get the results you’re looking for.
ALTERNATIVE BUSINESS MODELS: Single-Family Rental Snapshots + Think Tanks
In less than five years, we’ve seen interest in the build-to-rent space grow exponentially from all angles—production builders, developers, financiers, individual investors and consumers alike. So, how do you get into single family rentals or better serve this business as a product or service provider? What do the economics look like versus for sale housing? And what are the greatest opportunities for growth? Get snapshots from from an SFR developer, a consultant, and an investor and dig deeper with the collective intelligence in the room during table-based think tank discussions.
ALTERNATIVE BUSINESS MODELS: Home as a Service Snapshots + Think Tanks
Single-family rentals are just one way the housing industry can move away from transactional relationships and create customers for life. We believe a new trend is on the horizon – Home as a Service. Homebuilders, developers, manufacturers, utilities and other players are taking a cue from disrupters in the hospitality, food service and transportation industries (i.e. AirBnB, GrubHub + Uber) to create an ongoing dialogue with consumers and turn housing into a more service-based business. Through expert snapshots and think tanks, we’ll explore opportunities that will provide greater convenience, attainability and quality of life, including value-added services like home maintenance and health care and new financial models like land and equipment leasing.

HOME DELIVERY BUILDER PANEL + THINK TANKS: Best Practices, Pain Points + Opportunities for Innovation Today
Two regional builders, two national builders, a developer and a super trade will all share their insights on how to get ahead in home delivery today, what keeps them up at night, and the biggest opportunities we have to make their lives easier (and housing better). We’ll get top of mind thoughts from each expert, follow it up with Q+A and open things up for a lively discussion among the room. Then we’ll dig deeper—with questions we’ve planned in advance and others that emerge in the room—during table-based think tanks. We’ll close today’s chapter with report outs from the room and ideas for next steps.
NEXT GENERATION HOME DELIVERY Panel + Think Tank Discussions
In the afternoon, we’ll shift gears and look at the next generation of home delivery—how acquisitions and joint ventures are creating new opportunities for innovation and growth, how to build tomorrow’s workforce today, ways to bridge the gap between on-site and off-site and industrialize the construction process, and how new product and material strategies can drive productivity, profitability and attainability. Get top of mind thoughts from each expert, follow it up with Q+A, and dig deeper during table-based think tanks. We’ll sketch out a collective vision of the future with report outs from the room and ideas for greater innovation.
