REfresh User Conference 2024 Recap

REfresh 2024: A Breeze User Conference

REfresh, our fourth annual online conference for Yardi Breeze and Yardi Breeze Premier users in the U.S. and Canada, wrapped up April 18. We’re thrilled that so many of our clients joined us for two days and 100+ educational sessions covering nearly every market, feature and add-on offered by Breeze and Breeze Premier. We took feedback from last year and expanded the number of sessions, developed stronger live chat connections during the conference, added a more robust Yardi Ambassador Lounge and included more client voices in our content. Once again, the conference was delivered on our own Yardi Aspire platform.

Numbers say it all

The conference was fun, but there was serious learning happening at any given moment. Here are some stats to give you a sense of what went down in just two days.

  • 3,700 attendees logged in for the conference
  • Over 11,000 views and 1,500 hours of content watched
  • Average 5.6 videos watched per attendee
  • Sessions and instructors rated 4.6/5 stars

There were so many amazing comments, but here are a few of our favorites:  

  • “I’ve been a Yardi Ambassador for several years, and I’ve participated in REfresh every year. I love Yardi Breeze. I’m a broker and a property manager but not an accountant. Yardi Breeze makes it easy to do the job that’s the most difficult for an accounting amateur like me.”
  • “Love that you can pick and choose which class to watch, because the courses are broken down in detailed sections making it so user-friendly!”
  • “This was VERY helpful in finding reports I didn’t even know existed. Thank you.”
  • “I learned some new aspects of Yardi Breeze and will apply what I learn to my daily work. This will enhance my performance to a level of high efficiency and productivity.”
  • “I love hearing about how other clients are using CommercialCafe with Breeze Premier! Great panel presentation!”
  • “I think Chat IQ would be a fantastic tool, and the idea of 24/7 info to our prospects is huge.”

Thank you for joining REfresh 2024!
