Spring means many things to many people—but for anyone involved in the tri-state area's residential real estate industry, The Cooperator's 21st Annual Co-op & Condo Expo—to be held this year on Tuesday, April 29th on three floors of the Hilton New York—is as much a part of the season as budding trees and warmer temperatures.
Bigger and Better Each Year
This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Expo, and since its launch more than two decades ago, the event has been bigger, better, and more diverse with each passing year. When the Expo first appeared on the scene back in 1987, it featured only 12 booths—this year, there will be nearly 300. The first Expo offered four short seminars—this year, attendees will again be able to choose between half a dozen, conducted by distinguished panels of industry experts.
Attendees have flocked to the Expo in larger and larger numbers as the years have passed as well. Well over 3,000 guests are expected this year's event, including managing agents, board members (current, former, and aspiring), shareholders, unit owners, building staff members, and other real estate professionals.
The 2008 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.
Interacting with Professionals
The one thing among many that brings both exhibitors and guests back to The Cooperator'sCo-op & Condo Expo year after year is the chance to interact and network with co-op and condo board members, more suburban association members, residents, vendors and service providers from across diverse industries and disciplines.
