As we enter a new year and get ready for the snow and ice to fall, we, of course, look forward to warmer weather. One of the rites of passage to spring is The Cooperator’s annual Co-op & Condo Expo, which is now 27 years and running.
The free event, which showcases hundreds of exhibitors from throughout the region, along with free advice booths and a full slate of educational seminars, returns to the Hilton New York in Manhattan on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Expo is the biggest, best-attended, and most professionally diverse event of its kind on the East Coast; since its inception over a quarter-century ago, it's cemented its reputation as the must-attend event for the tri-state area’s property managers, board members, and unit owners. Anyone involved in the day-to-day administration of a co-op or condo will benefit from a visit to the show—as will building owners, managers, and anyone considering joining their board, or taking an active interest in how their building is run.
Good communication, organization, and information have always been crucial to maintaining a thriving, successful community, and smart boards and building managers know that in order to stay prosperous—or even just solvent—in a tough town like ours, one needs a strong set of building-related skills. The Cooperator's Co-op & Condo Expo offers attendees the opportunity to hone those skills, in one day and under one roof, with a wealth of advice and unique educational programming.
Every year, the Expo's seminar schedule attracts hundreds of attendees throughout the day. These always-popular hour-long panel presentations typically cover topics ranging from energy conservation to legal issues, board operations to effective property management, and the ins and outs of telecommunications. Seminar presenters include professionals from all corners of the industry, including attorneys, lending representatives, accountants, managers, consultants, and more.
