BOMA Experience Exchange Report (EER)

For nearly a century, BOMA’s Experience Exchange Report (EER) has been the industry’s most trusted benchmarking resource—thanks to the thousands of property professionals who share their data each year.

This yearly event offers the members educational seminars, networking and sponsorship opportunities, and the highly anticipated TOBY Awards dinner.
