Student Housing Industry Leaders to Convene at 2018 Dell Technologies Match Play Golf Tournament

AUSTIN, TX (March 21, 2018) — Campus Advantage®, a leader in student housing, providing property management, consulting, acquisitions, and development services, and Catalyst, an Austin-based agency specializing in marketing for student and multifamily housing, announced today that they are hosting their first annual Cornerstone Summit in conjunction with the 2018 Dell Technologies Match Play PGA golf tournament in Austin, Texas. Held March 21-25, industry leaders will have the opportunity to attend insider strategy sessions, tour the Campus Advantage and Catalyst offices, and meet the entire team, all while enjoying some of the best golfing in the country as a result of Campus Advantage’s sponsorship of the event.

“We are honored to host our first annual Cornerstone Summit and be a sponsor of the 2018 Dell Technologies Match Play,” said Mike Peter, President and CEO of Campus Advantage. “To bring together leaders in the multi-housing industry for two days of fun, learning and collaboration while supporting Austin-based charities is a privilege. We are excited to see our Cornerstone Summit create a positive impact not only in our industry, but in our community at large.”

During the first day of the Summit, the companies will host two educational events at their joint offices. Campus Advantage will offer a two part educational session including a revenue management section to help leaders to look beyond a tiered rental rate system, as well as a value add section that will discuss the strategies that helped the Campus Advantage team to manage over $30 million in capital improvements in 2017. Catalyst will also provide an educational session that explores the latest marketing trends as well as a discussion on customer experience, reputation management, branding and automation. On the second day of the Summit, industry leaders are invited to enjoy a full day of watching golf from the Dell Match Play VIP tent with the Campus Advantage and Catalyst teams and fellow attendees.

Dell Technologies Match Play is one of the biggest draws on the PGA Tour circuit where professional golfers go head-to-head and attendees enjoy sponsored activities and refreshments, all while raising money to give back to Austin-area charities. Last year, the PGA Tour raised $1.1 million for five Austin-based nonprofit organizations. This year, the five charities being supported are the Austin Parks Foundation, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area, The First Tee of Greater Austin, Helping Hand Home for Children, and Keep Austin Beautiful. Because of this merging of social good and fun in the city where they are headquartered, Campus Advantage and Catalyst decided to launch their Cornerstone Summit in conjunction with Dell Technologies Match Play.
