Last week we attended the California Apartment Association Housing Education Expo (mouthful, right?) where we had a chance to talk to the people who make things happen in our industry. It was a busy day for us, we were blessed to have a lot of visitors to our booth!, but we hardly felt it because we had such a great time! Here’s a picture of us before the doors were open to the registrants:
The theme this year was ‘Go for the Gold,’ a play on the Olympics, so we gave out Gold Medal Cookies and water bottles at our table in front of the Olympic torches which flanked our banner. Both were a big hit but then again, who doesn’t like cookies?! Swag (the free promotional materials that companies pass out to attendees) is definitely a big draw to these events and adds to the fun, so we’re really glad that everyone liked our swag!
But the best part of our day was the opportunity to network with professionals in our industry! We introduced our new Account Executive for the South Bay, Amanda Landon, and she repeatedly stated throughout the day how much she was enjoying the chance to meet the people she was looking forward to working with in the near future. I don’t think she sat down once the whole day! But that is one of the reasons we love Amanda so much, her enthusiasm for the property management industry and customer service, coupled with her bottomless energy, are what make her such a perfect fit for Renoir Staffing and our dedication to the community we serve. If you didn’t get a chance to meet Amanda at the event, be sure to send her an email to say hello! She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
However, Amanda wasn’t the only one networking that day! Director of Sales Arisha Williams, and Account Executives Karen Quennell and Theresa Cannon were also having a great time meeting with the attendees, many of whom they have worked with extensively over years. Including previous temps who have now been working as permanent employees for the property management companies we placed them in! Catching up with these employees is the part I enjoy most about these events.
Check out the rest of our pictures from the expo here. And while you’re on our Facebook site, be sure to take a look at our other albums, including those Employees of the Month that have made this business a joy to be in, as well as last year’s RHA Expo where our booth was turned into a Parisian tea shop!
Happy Wednesday to all and it was a pleasure to see you last week!
