The Reverse Trade Show is a fun twist on a traditional trade show or exposition!
The Reverse Trade Show is a combination of musical chairs and speed dating. This exclusive event is only available to CAA Members and sells out every year. Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this fast-paced, high-energy trade show.
Instead of vendors exhibiting at the trade show, Management Companies are the exhibitors. The largest management companies in California send their key decision makers to sit behind a table and meet with Industry Partners ‘walking the floor’. The Management Companies attend to meet with vendors to learn about new products or services that could increase their resident satisfaction and returns on their properties.
Vendors, or Industry Partners, register a team of two to attend. Only one team per company can participate and the team meets with several different Management Companies for roughly seven minutes per meeting. It is very important that you register as soon as possible for this event. A few weeks prior to the Reverse Trade Show, you will receive a survey of the participating management companies. Please take this survey right away. Meetings will be scheduled by sponsorship and by date and time registered for the event
There will plenty of food and drinks available throughout the day.
