The Cooperator’s annual Co-op & Condo Expo, which is now in its 26th year, is the premier event for education, networking and learning all you need to know about managing and maintaining co-op and condo properties in the Greater New York tri-state area.
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 16, 2013 from 9 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 related skills. The Cooperator'sCo-op & Condo Expo offers attendees the opportunity to hone those skills, in one day and under one roof, with a full slate of unique educational programming.
Every year, the Expo's full schedule of seminars 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. The seminar lineup for 2013 includes experts from the prestigious law firm Herrick, Feinstein LLP discussing the impact of Superstorm Sandy; the Daylight Savings Company talking about energy efficiency and the new local laws affecting New York City; Meridian Capital explaining the loan qualification process for co-ops; and Verizon discussing high speed Internet, an amenity that no building should be without. In addition to these seminars, The Cooperatorwill also host seminars on topics of interest to board members and co-op and condo decision makers. Expo seminars nearly always attract standing-room-only audiences, so be sure to arrive early and claim a spot in the audience!
