2019 Chapter Expo and
DRAFT A WINNING TEAM FOR YUR COMMUNITY
Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 8 am to 5 pm
Renaissance World Golf Village
Our Annual Education Day & Expo designed to bridge the gap between homeowners, board members, managers, and the business partners that support them. The Expo is no ordinary trade show. Every year we choose a theme and immerse ourselves producing a truly exceptional trade show experience, with this year’s theme being “Draft a Winning Team for your Community.” Each booth will be participating in best booth design and best costume that fits the theme competitions.
There will be FREE Education Classes available to registered attendees from 9 am-11:15 am AND from 2 pm to 4:15 pm; 60 vendor expo booths to visit from 10:30 am to 4:00 pm, raffle prize giveaways, and Happy Hour at 4 pm.
The trade show is free to HOA Board Members and Managers. Only those CAI Business Partners purchasing a booth will be allowed on the Exhibit floor and only those Business Partners purchasing a sponsorship will be allowed to attend their sponsored event. Please review the suitcasing policy below.
Self-parking is free at the hotel. Each registered CAM, HOA Board Member and Exhibitor will also receive one free drink ticket (soft drink or select alcoholic beverage).
CAI has a no tolerance policy regarding “suitcasing,” which describes the practice of non-sponsoring companies or individuals of soliciting sales or sales leads in the lobbies and/or representing their services or soliciting trade show participants for conflicting social activities. Violators of these policies will be ejected from the trade show if applicable, and charged $3,000 which must be paid prior to registering as an attendee, exhibitor or sponsor at any future CAI events.
Under NO circumstances are Business Partners who have not purchase a booth or sponosrship allowed to solicit their company and/or business to any attendees, exhibitors, speakers, etc. Trade Show participants and exhibitors are instructed to contact security if there are any violations of this policy and the violator(s) will then be escorted out and removed from the Trade Show. Exhibitors and Sponsors have paid for the opportunity to promote their business to prospective clients and do not appreciate being solicited by vendors or undermined by competitors. This conduct is disrespectful and does not make a good impression with NEFL CAI members, especially property managers. Therefore the NEFL CAI Chapter expects all business attendees to respect its policies, so that the Trade Show participants can focus on their purpose for attending and not be put in an uncomfortable situation.
