The 2012 New England Condo Expo Information and Networking—All Under One Roof

The 2012 New England Condo Expo

 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,
