Now in its fourth year, the New England Condo Expo has become the annual must-attend event for the New England property managers, board members, real estate professionals and unit owners. Returning to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston on Tuesday, May 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the 2012 Condo Expo will showcase over 150 exhibitors from throughout the region, along with free advice booths and a full slate of educational seminars.
Good information and clear communication are crucial for anyone involved with the administration of a community association—crucial not just to thriving, but even surviving in today’s challenging economic times. Finding that information and developing communication strategies isn’t always easy, however. The New England Condo Expo offers attendees the opportunity to do both, in one day and under one roof, with a full slate of unique educational programming.
Full Day of Seminars
This year, a full schedule of seminars will be presented, running throughout the day and covering topics such as board operations, effective property management, saving energy and more. Seminar presenters will include attorneys from Marcus, Errico, Emmer & Brooks, PC, and Goodman, Shapiro & Lombardi, as well as energy experts from National Grid.
Last year's seminars attracted standing-room-only audiences—so make sure to arrive early so you don’t get shut out.
Free Advice Booths & More
Vendor booths and a full schedule of seminars may be the big draws to the Expo, but that’s hardly the whole picture.
In addition to networking and education opportunities, the show's popular free advice booths will be returning as well. If you have questions about your association’s finances, policies, or day-to-day management, you can stop by one of the booths for answers from leading legal, management, maintenance, insurance and financial professionals.
And of course, no trade show would be complete without giveaways and raffles.
Throughout the day, random drawings will be held for a host of valuable door prizes. Past attendees have gone home with tickets to professional sporting events, televisions, certificates for valuable condo and HOA services, even vacation packages!
$2,500 Reserve Fund Giveaway
One of the most popular offerings is the Reserve Fund prize giveaway, courtesy of New England Condominium and Yale Robbins, Inc. One attendee at the Expo will win a $2,500 contribution to their building or association's reserve fund. The winner will be drawn at random after registration has closed, and a check for the winnings will be made payable to the winner’s association, care of their management company.
Only board members qualify to enter the reserve fund drawing, and attendance at the Expo is required for eligibility. For complete details on how to enter the reserve fund drawing, visit the Expo website, www.ne-expo.com.
