Turning the Tables - Literally! 

Managers Host Company Tables for Business Partners to Speed Date

Back by popular demand after last year's debut! As a complement to our ongoing traditional trade show where 'buyers' rove exhibits at their leisure, a reverse trade show offers mini-appointments between business partners and buyers.    

This format allows a different type of quality time between managers and business partners. Specific meeting times are set before the show, and participating management companies host tables for the business partners to visit.

It's a high-energy, fun environment. Your conversations can get right to the important stuff, because we help participants learn a little about each other before the event so no need for lengthy introductions.

Up to 3 managers from each participating management company will host a visit with each service provider for 6 minutes. When the bell rings, time's up! and the next business partner arrives.


Enjoy snacks & short breaks along the way! 


From last year's 50 participating managers:

  • Loved the Speed Dating. I felt like we got a lot more information than when you wander around the expo. Vendors kept it quick and got to the important info fast. It wasn't about the swag and you weren't interrupted by other people coming up.
  • I loved the ability to connect with various, previously unknown to me. Awesome resource!
  • More relaxed than the expo floor, and gave vendors a chance to add a personal touch to their "sales pitch" and gave us a chance to ask questions.



Three managers from your firm are invited to host your company table. More info / Sign up.



BUSINESS PARTNERS: Two team members from your company are invited to join us.

  • Introduce new managers to your services, products and technologies.
  • Help your customers connect names and faces with your company's solutions. 
  • Leverage your presence at Conference and have a blast with managers in a unique new setting 

 Available only to current member firms who are registered 2019 Exhibitors. Price: $800.
