All New Buildings Event to Focus on Small and
Mid-sized Metro NY Building Owners & Managers
(New York, NY October 12) -- BuildingsNY, an annual event serving the New York metropolitan buildings and real estate marketplace, has gotten a complete retrofit. The new BuildingsNY event, being held May 2-3, 2012 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, has been redesigned in the following ways:
- Focusing on the very specific needs of small- to mid-sized building owners;
- Expanded its exhibitor and vendor segments to include Building Automation, Business Services; Financing; Renovation and Retrofit and Security;
- Offering new, lower pricing for vendor participation;
- The input of a new association partner, the Small Property Owners of NY (SPONY) to work alongside the event’s founding sponsor, the Associated Builders & Owners of Greater New York (ABO) and other industry supporters.
“This summer, we conducted a robust series of customer feedback sessions including focus groups, surveys and in-person discussions,” said Christine Ford, Event Director. “The results of these enabled us to take a second look at our current strategy and make these significant revisions.”
The new BuildingsNY will expand upon its presence of small to mid-sized building owners and managers with active projects. Vendors will be able to meet with key decision makers through networking opportunities on the show floor. In addition, the BuildingsNY management team has tapped into a new database to leverage insights to identify those buildings owners with open projects who are looking for vendors who can help them improve the value of their building and save money.
For vendors, BuildingsNY will offer new opportunities for companies in the services area such as technology, automation and back-office systems, while adding financing and security areas with new lower prices. According to Christine Ford, BuildingsNY has negotiated new pricing for the 2012 event making it more attractive for vendors to participate in a format that is conducive to their marketing budgets.
“BuildingsNY will provide the one-stop source to see, meet and save for small- to mid-sized building owners from more vendors who can now afford to participate,” she said.
One of the many insights gathered from customers is the hassle of coming to the event on the West side of Manhattan. BuildingsNY participants will have an easier and more productive time of attending with service updates such as early-bird free registration for building owners, expanded free educational content right on the show floor with a Main Stage theater area with free advice, networking and product showcases. There will be increased shuttles to the Javits Center from Grand Central and Penn Station as well as pre-negotiated reduced parking options.
The all-new 2012 BuildingsNY event, being held on May 2-3, 2012, will serve over 7000 small and mid-sized buildings owners and manager with the tools they need to lower their operating costs and source vendors who can help them enhance the value of their building. With new business services vendor and suppliers, attractive and lower cost pricing to participate and the promise of a more productive experience, metro-NY building owners and managers can efficiently satisfy their operating objectives in a one-stop event created with their needs in mind. BuildingsNY 2012 welcomes the input and support from all participating sponsors including its Founding Sponsor, Associated Builders & Owners of Greater New York (ABO) – and new support from the Small Property Owners of NY (SPONY).
