Associa Somerset Hosts Speed-Dating Vendor Fair

July 20, 2016

DALLAS, Texas – July 20, 2016 – Somerset Association Management, an Associa company, found a unique way to introduce multiple vendors to its community association managers in a very short time frame.

The recent speed-dating style vendor fair paired employees with service professionals for three-minute intervals at Associa’s home office in Dallas. A dozen vendors got on-on-one time with managers to discuss everything from landscaping and roofing to neighborhood security, plumbing and painting.

“This was a smart and efficient way to get everyone in the same room and present our community managers with resources and ideas they can take back to their communities,” says Associa Regional Sales Director Leslie Baldwin. “The speed-dating aspect is great for networking and we were wrapped up before 10 a.m. so it didn’t cut too deep into the work day.”
