In just a few weeks, the cavernous depths of the luxurious Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center in Kissimmee will be filled with adventure as contractors, suppliers, attorneys, accountants, managers, service providers and other business partners descend and set out on Adventures in the Association! On Friday, March 31st, the Central Florida Chapter will host the 2017 edition of its annual Community Associations Day and Tradeshow, bringing together those who live, work, and provide goods and services to condominiums, cooperatives, and homeowners associations throughout Florida. Nationally recognized as one of the best tradeshows and educational programs in the country, this year’s program is expected to clamber to the top of that pyramid and claim the top spot.
This year’s educational programs will feature a board member training and certification course (required by Florida Statutes), a legal case preparation course for Community Association Managers (offering CEU credits), and an Attorneys Legal Panel session, offering free legal advice and guidance from seasoned community association law practitioners. Educational sessions will begin at 10:30 a.m. and run through 1:30 p.m. on Friday.
Given the Show’s grand history and reputation for excellence, demand for exhibition sites was high and supply was limited; the Trade Show Committee is proud to announce that, more than 60 days ahead of the Show date, all 125 exhibitor booths had been claimed, and the Show is SOLD OUT! However, sponsorship opportunities still abound! Exhibit booths will be open beginning at 2:00 p.m. on day of show and be staffed through 6:00 p.m. that evening. Exhibitor packets will be coming within a couple of weeks.
Throughout the day, many of our Business Partners will be offering door prizes and giveaways to Show attendees, while the Chapter’s Board of Directors members and representatives of the Membership and the Education Committees facilitate the break-out sessions and general events of the day.
Following the Trade Show, the Chapter invites you to continue the Adventures by attending an After-Party in the opulent Gaylord Palms atrium, featuring food, drinks, and live entertainment. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and concludes at 10:00 p.m. After-Party tickets are available at just $35.00 per person and can be purchased on the registration website.
Admission to the event is FREE for Board Members and Community Association Managers! Registration is available here. Parking (at the rear of the convention center facility) is also FREE for board members.
