It’s March, and along with springtime comes The Cooperator’s Annual Co-op & Condo Expo at the New York Hilton. This year marks the Expo’s19th outing and once again, the exhibition floors will be abuzz with a full day of information, seminars, vendors, networking, and giveaways.
The Cooperator’s Co-op & Condo Expo has been going strong for nearly two decades, but this year marks a great leap forward in the Expo’s evolution — the show will occupy three floors at the Hilton to accommodate attendees’ increasing demand for more seminar space and allow for additional exhibitors this year. This year’s seminars are not only timely and informational as always but feature industry experts who are the tops in their respective fields from finance to telecommunications and interior design.
Also, this year marks the debut of the Expo’s Cyber Café. Located right next to the food court in Americas Hall II, the café will feature high-speed access computer terminals so attendees can check e-mail, sports scores, and more as they take in the rest of the Expo.
More than 5,000 attendees are expected this year as well, representing every industry and profession — from board members and shareholders to industry professionals, financiers, and vendors. The increase over last year will make 2006 the biggest Expo ever, and reinforce the event as the most comprehensive trade show of its kind in the region.
Knowledge is Power
In addition to having three whole floors of vendors and informational resources at their disposal, attendees to this year’s Expo will also be able to take advantage of The Cooperator’s wildly popular educational seminars — which this year will be sponsored and moderated by some of the co-op and condo industry’s key players.
