Next week, Team Sherpa is heading to Nashville for the 2017 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference. We’re looking forward to visiting with client partners and industry professionals from across the U.S. and Canada during the three-day conference, where we’ll also present at the Executive Director Leadership Institute.

We’ve got big plans for Argentum ’17. Here’s a preview of where you’ll find us May 1-3:

Sherpa Café

If you run on coffee, we’re going to be your favorite stop on this year’s Argentum Expo circuit.

Instead of a booth, we’re opening Sherpa Café, our own coffee shop on the exhibit hall floor. Our on-site baristas will be serving free specialty coffee drinks so attendees can fuel up before visiting the nearly 300 companies exhibiting at this year’s event. If you need a caffeine boost or just a break from being in “conference mode,” swing by Sherpa Café to find a friendly face.

Follow the smell of coffee or this handy, interactive map to find us on the exhibition floor: we’re in Zone 1, section 601. Sherpa Café will be open during expo hours: 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 to 6 p.m. on May 2 and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 3.

Even if you can’t make it to Argentum, you can still follow the fun. Follow the hashtag #SherpaCafe on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for photos and updates from the scene. The official conference hashtag is #Argentum17.

Sherpa at EDLI

We’re honored that Argentum selected Sherpa co-founders David Smith and Alex Fisher to present at the Executive Director Leadership Institute, where EDs from across the U.S. and Canada delve into a broad range of mission-critical topics.

In their session, titled Optimizing Your Community’s Sales Process, Smith and Fisher will discuss proactive, hands-on sales strategies and tools EDs can use to set goals, participate in sales planning, establish relevant metrics and effectively manage sales behaviors and processes. Participating EDs can join us at 2:30 p.m. May 1 in Nashville’s Music City Center.
