Members Find Prime Time At Industry Expo

A large contingent of IFMA members joined several hundred facility and property managers, maintenance technicians, building owners and suppliers at the 12th Annual Industry Expo. Held on May 10 at the St. Charles Convention Center, our members certainly found plenty to tune into during the “Prime Time” expo.

Jointly sponsored by the St. Louis chapters of IFMA, BOMA (Building Owners Management Association) and IREM (Institute of Real Estate Management), the annual gathering gave members some show stoppers.

The prime time opened with a luncheon, featuring keynote speaker Buddy Rice. A customer service guru, Rice has designed, developed and delivered customer service, management and leadership development programs for more than 30 years! And he didn’t disappoint, with a succinct, fast-paced, practical customer service production. More than 200 attendees were engaged, involved and laughing at Rice’s prime time performance. Better yet, they took home ideas to apply in their workplaces.

Afterwards, the exhibit hall opened for more prime time shows. Some 80 exhibitors, half of them IFMA members, showcased products and services for buildings. Besides learning more about the latest and greatest, attendees were rewarded for visiting booths with prizes such as Kindle Fires, IPads, Cardinals’ tickets and more.

The day also provided prime time for networking with a Happy Hour. Beverages and hors d’oeuvres kept the crowd tuned in after spending a few hours on the exhibit floor.
