CAI-MN 2014 Tradeshow Recap

By Carin Rosengren, Keller Property Management

It Takes More than that to Stop CAI-MN!

Snow dampens attendance, but not enthusiasm at annual CAI-MN Trade Show

Hardy Midwest folks like us are well used to Minnesota weather and the variety of surprises it brings. That’s why landscapers, arborists, roofers, restoration specialists, bankers, engineers, asphalt/concrete outfits and many, many more were in attendance, along with property managers and homeowner-association volunteers, at the annual CAI-MN Trade Show on Feb. 20 at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

As it has in years past, the Xcel proved an ideal location for the 60+ booths of exhibitors offering services to members of Minnesota’s Community Associations Institute (CAI) chapter. Many of the exhibitors offered prize drawings, and all had giveaways and fun freebies in exchange for a handshake, a business card or a simple “hello.” The food and service were top-notch, with a central bar serving potent and other potables to everyone there.

Informative and educational sessions were well-attended at this year’s event, which not only had a modified format from prior years, but underwent last-minute adjustments to accommodate the weather conditions. Thank you to Ewald Consulting for the work you do on behalf of CAI-MN, and to the local CAI leaders who helped plan the event. It was a job well-done!
