Upcoming Event

Best of St. Louis Networking Expo
Wednesday, July 13
4 - 7:00 pm

The SLAA Product and Service Council will be hosting the Best of St. Louis Networking Expo. This event works similar to a trade show, with one difference – owner/management representatives are at their company table, and vendors have the opportunity to schedule a five (5) minute face-to-face meeting with the company representative(s).  Over a two-hour period, vendors will have the opportunity to visit approximately ten (10) companies. This event is a highly effective association business-networking event.

Event Highlights

St. Louis Members Attend NAA Conference & Exposition
June 15 – 18
Moscone Convention Center
San Francisco

Well over 75 SLAA member companies attended NAA’s Conference this year!  Staff members from StoneCreek Communities, Maxus, The Lipton Group, Dominium Management; Somerset, Terra Holding and Fairway Management were just a few of the lucky ones that enjoyed visiting San Francisco.  What a beautiful city by the bay! 

With nearly 10,000 attendees, it was difficult catching up with our SLAA colleagues at times.  Educational seminars (over 50) were available every day, all day.  As you can imagine, topics ranged from due diligence, marketing/branding, leadership, team building, maintenance, customer service, technology, design, utility management, public relations and strategic planning.  The choices were endless!  As you can imagine, attendees needed to pick and choose their seminars very carefully.

The exposition (450 exhibitors) was dynamic, with every product known or not known to the multi-family there to showcase! 

Wednesday lead off with a new Living Room Learning session:  Eight speakers who each had 20 slides that automatically advance every 20 seconds!  That was followed by Game Changer Marc Randolph, co-founder and former CEO of Netflix.

The opening session on Thursday featured Michael Strahan, Legendary Super Bowl Champion, and currently one of the hosts of Good Morning America. 

Friday’s General Session featured Chip and Joanna Gaines, the hosts of HGTV’s Fixer Upper! As you can see something for everyone!

And last, but certainly not least, our own Rob Mooney, Maintenance Supervisor at The Enclave, Banner Property Management was a finalist in the 2016 Maintenance Mania Competition.  Rob scored in the top three in several of the competitions.  Congratulations Rob!  Thanks for representing St. Louis!  It was a spirited, exciting event! 

This was an outstanding event; beneficial to every single member.   We encourage you to discuss future attendance at an upcoming NAA Conferences and Exposition. 

Next year’s event is June 21 – 24 at Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta.
