15 Must-Attend Events and Conferences for Real Estate Agents in 2020
Conferences are a great way to brush up your skills, learn about the latest trends and, most importantly, network with other movers and shakers in the industry.
And thankfully, the real estate world is full of them.
Do you have your calendar open and ready? Here are the four big ones you’ll want to mark down:
Sponsored by well-known real estate publication Inman, this one’s a weeklong event featuring all kinds of speakers, sessions, and activities. The 2020 event will take place at the end of July at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas (so you can have a little non-agent fun, too).
This conference from the NAR is in New Orleans this year, November 13 – 16, 2020. It offers educational sessions, networking opportunities, social gatherings, and more. There are also dozens of speakers from all facets of the industry.
Another official National Association of REALTORS® event, the Broker Summit will delve into the latest trends, technology, and best practices seen in the industry today. The event will take place at the Lowes Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles from March 31 to April 1.
At the end of the day, real estate is a local game. For the latest localized market data, trends, and happenings, your state’s convention is your best bet. NAR has a full list of each state’s dates, locations, and contact info so you can pencil it in.
