Empowering Alberta Condominium Communities!

May 21, 2024

The Alberta Condo Expo (ACE) 2024 is a major event tailored for the condominium community in Alberta. ElectionBuddy was in attendance this year, April 26-27, 2024, at the NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre in Edmonton. The expo offers a comprehensive platform for condo owners, board members, managers, and industry professionals to engage in educational sessions, network, and explore the latest products and services. We were thrilled to participate not only for the networking opportunity but to get in front of the local condominium community in Alberta because one of our main offices is located in Edmonton!

We were one of over 50 vendors to participate in the Trade Show and were excited to be asked to speak at the Educational Sessions that take place throughout the event. These breakout sessions cover a variety of topics critical to the condominium community. This year, ElectionBuddy focused learnings to help the Alberta condominium communities revolutionize their voting processes.

ElectionBuddy's goal for attending this event was to help Alberta condominiums and HOAs see an easy way to election excellence with our great platform and services. Whether they were looking to facilitate their votes themselves or enlist our Expert Services, there's an affordable solution available to everyone.
