During the event, vendors participated in face-to-face networking with Associa British Columbia community and property managers over Zoom. Managers virtually rotated, spending quality time with each vendor. By the conclusion of the event, each vendor had been able to meet with each property management leader to network and share materials and business plans.
Funds raised from the event will support the charitable disaster relief and community assistance provided by Associa Cares. This year, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the transition to an online vendor fair was made to protect the health and safety of participants while ensuring the team still takes time to connect with vendors and assist Associa Cares in raising funds necessary to help those in need. In the past, Associa Cares distributed more than $25,500 to Canadian families impacted by home fires and organizations providing COVID-19 relief efforts.
Associa British Columbia appreciates the 20 trade partners who supported the event and the 11 trade partners who attended the virtual networking. Special thanks is extended to the following gold level sponsors:
- Community Fire Prevention
- Action Integrated Security Solutions
- Hamilton & Company
- National Air Technologies
- Phoenix Restorations
- HUB International
- Prostar Contracting
