ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSES AT 5PM ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH. YOU CAN STILL COME TO THE SHOW, BUT YOU WILL NEED TO REGISTER ONSITE THE DAY OF THE EVENT.
CA Day is an annual trade show bridging the gap between Homeowner Leaders (board members), Community Managers, and the Business Partners that support them. The trade show 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 “Building Heroes in Your Community.” Each booth will be participating in best booth designs and visitor engagement competitions. All of this is aimed at bringing a super hero type of experience to our annual trade show.
There will be FREE Education Classes available to registered attendees from 9am-3:30pm, 129 vendor expo booths to visit from 1:30pm-5:30pm, thousands of dollars in raffle prize giveaways, and the Havana Nights After Party from 6pm-9pm.
Each registered CAM and HOA Board Member will receive one free drink ticket (soft drink or select alcoholic beverage).

NON-EXHIBITING BUSINESSES ATTENDING TRADE SHOW: SUITCASING POLICY
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. Businesses participating as Trade Show attendees are permitted to leave their contact information at the registration desk to be added to the chapter’s database; visit the CAICF membership table to gather information about the chapter and its programs; view the exhibit area to determine future participation; and to attend educational programs. However, under NO circumstances are they 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 CAICF members, especially property managers. Therefore the CAICF 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.
