The Cooperator magazine and Yale Robbins, Inc. are pleased to invite all property managers, board members, shareholders and unit owners to the 23rd annual Co-op & Condo Expo, a one-day trade show event on Tuesday, April 27, 2010 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The 2010 Expo will again occupy three floors of the Hilton New York at 1335 Avenue of the Americas at 53rd Street with booths, seminars, and demonstrations all day long.
Since its launch more than two decades ago, the Expo has distinguished itself as a unique event that addresses the diverse, evolving needs of the co-op and condo community. This year, there will be nearly 300 exhibitors offering assistance and expert advice in the areas of building management, maintenance, insurance, security, energy and countless other services. Attendees will also be able to choose from among an exciting roster of seminars covering an array of topics of great interest to the co-op and condo community.
As the years have gone by, the Expo has grown, attracting larger and larger numbers of attendees. The 2009 Expo brought board members and residents from nearly 1,000 area buildings, and managing agents from over 3,000. And that's to say nothing of the numbers of other real estate professionals and service providers who make the Expo an annual pilgrimage.
Interacting with Professionals
One of the biggest draws of The Cooperator’sCo-op & Condo Expo is that it's really more than just a trade show. The event offers educational opportunities as well as a chance for various members of the residential real estate community to interact and network with co-op and condo board members, residents, vendors and service providers from across many diverse industries and disciplines.
The 2010 Expo will feature a wide array of information and educational opportunities for participants, including hundreds of booths and several free seminars sponsored by established industry professionals and covering the kinds of topics that boards, managers, and building residents are most eager to discuss. These seminars are perhaps one of the day’s most popular features, and routinely attract standing-room-only audiences. (It's definitely a good idea to arrive and claim a seat a few minutes before your chosen seminar is scheduled to start!)
