Luxury Homebuilder SWFL Celebrates Community and Innovation at Super Regional Conference

As a leading luxury homebuilder in SWFL, Alair Florida hosted its 2-day Super Regional Conference, themed “Shifting into High Gear,” showcasing the company’s commitment to home building innovation and excellence. The event took place February 1-3, 2024, and was more than just an industry event; it was a powerful testament to the company’s values and commitment to its community. With 22 out of 106 locations represented, 20% of Alair’s offices across North America came together to participate in engaging learning sessions, insightful networking opportunities, and meaningful celebrations of achievements and community engagement. This event truly showcased the vibrant team culture and innovative spirit that set Alair Florida apart.

Learning and Sharing: Insights for Luxury Homeowners in SWFL

The conference kicked off on Thursday, February 1st, focusing on learning and development. Attendees, representing a diverse cross-section of Alair’s talented workforce, participated in informative sessions covering industry trends, best practices, and the latest construction technologies. A highlight was the Friday panel discussion on the “Future of Construction,” featuring industry experts and Alair’s president, Rob Cecil. This insightful session offered valuable perspectives on the evolving landscape of the construction industry and how Alair is positioned to lead the way.

The conference wasn’t confined to the walls of the brand-new AC Hotel by Marriott Naples 5th Avenue, located in the heart of innovation and design – the Design District. It ventured out, making a real impact on the community, guided by Alair’s core values embodied in Alair Cares and Alair 100 Acts of Living Better.

On Thursday night, a select group of attendees celebrated the exciting news of our newest partner, Jeff Cramer, joining forces with Barry VanWye of Bonita Springs to open a location in North Naples, thus expanding our footprint in the region. To mark this momentous occasion and embody the spirit of Alair Cares, we chose to attend the inaugural “Get Feed Up” event hosted by Blessings in a Backpack of Southwest Florida. Making it extra special, we were accompanied by several local partners.


We were incredibly humbled and thrilled by the generosity of our teammates at Alair and our partners, whose contributions, alongside the community’s incredible support, helped us raise nearly $18,000! This proud achievement added to the organization’s grand total of $150,000, ensuring that children in need throughout Southwest Florida have access to nutritious meals through Southwest Florida Chapter Blessings in a Backpack.

Cecilia St.Arnold, Executive Director of Blessings in a Backpack of Southwest Florida, expressed her gratitude for Alair’s involvement: “We are incredibly grateful for the support of Alair Florida and their partners. Their contributions at the Get Feed Up event will directly impact the lives of hundreds of children in our community. It’s inspiring to see companies in the construction industry going beyond building homes and actively investing in the well-being of children.”

This collective effort provided much-needed food assistance to local children facing hunger and highlighted the strong relationships Alair has built within the community.

Unforgettable Evening and Continued Community Focus

Friday night, February 2nd, brought a touch of fun and celebration with a live performance by Alair Sanibel’s very own Shelly Lucas and her band, Rocker. This local classic rock band provided an unforgettable evening of entertainment and camaraderie for all attendees.

“This wasn’t just about industry trends and networking, although those were important,” Glen Harris III, Regional Partner for Alair SWFL, emphasized. “It was about celebrating the incredible team we’ve built at Alair. We came together to learn, grow, and, yes, have some fun along the way. That’s what truly sets us apart: our shared passion and commitment to excellence.”

This spirit of giving continued on Saturday with participation in the Cars On Fifth event, benefiting the St. Matthew’s House. Alair’s 20×20 booth presence contributed to the event’s overall success, which saw a remarkable $1.7 million raised over four days to support the organization’s critical work. Even the conference space itself buzzed with excitement. Alair’s booth featured a stunning bright green Porsche Cayman race car, courtesy of one of our recent clients, branded with the Alair logo.

The conference wasn’t just about business but also about creating lasting memories. One lucky attendee, Ava Russen, walked away with an amazing on-track driving experience at The Motor Enclave in Tampa, FL.
